Bears for Flags:
One of the chapter’s projects is to give flag display boxes and U.S. Flags flown over the U.S. Capitol to all Army ROTC Cadets when they commission from the Golden Buffalo Battalion at the University of Colorado. The Golden Buffalo Battalion not only includes the University of Colorado, Boulder, but also Colorado School of Mines, Metropolitan State University of Denver, Colorado Christian University, Colorado Technical University, Johnson & Wales University, Regis University, University of Colorado Denver, University of Denver, Arapahoe Community College, Community College of Denver, Front Range Community College, and Red Rocks Community College.
The chapter regent donates homemade bears which are sold, and the proceeds purchase flags and boxes.
DAR Good Citizen:
The 10th Mountain Chapter presented DAR Good Citizen awards to six schools in 2018, and we look forward to working with them as well as several new schools for 2018-2019. Those schools are Battle Mountain, Eagle Valley, Vail Mountain School, Vail Christian, Vail Ski & Snowboard Academy, New America, Red Canyon, Lake County and Summit High Schools. The chapter also adopted the 2018 DAR Good Citizen from Vail Mountain School. She will be starting in the Army ROTC program at the University of Colorado. We hope to send cards of encouragement and care packages, and in four years present her with a flag display box and flag during her commissioning.
Work of the Society
Most of the significant work of the NSDAR is done at the grassroots level through individual chapters and members of the 10th Mountain Chapter NSDAR are delighted to join with the other 46 chapters in Colorado, the state DAR, and the National Society in service to our communities. Each chapter has its own programs and initiatives based on the DAR mission and guidance from the state and national leadership. Our committees are the base of our chapter’s involvement in our communities; giving our members opportunities to serve DAR objectives that are most valuable to each person. Some of the committees we are excited to serve include:
