Patriotism - Chico Chapter, NSDAR, Daughters regularly participate in Memorial Day and Veterans Day ceremonies in local communities in Butte County by placing beautiful, patriotic wreaths. We honor the service of past DAR members by adding flags to their grave markers for Memorial Day weekend as well as helping with flags for veterans' markers. We promote Constitution Week and participate in 9/11 ceremonies in September. We have presented flags to youth and civic groups, including Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, veterans, the Chico and Paradise libraries, and area schools. Each year, we participate in DAR Project Patriot in some way, filling boxes to send to active duty soldiers or gathering food to give to the local Veterans Food Bank. In the past, we participated in "Wreaths Across America" with the Sons of the American Revolution.
