Community Involvement
Three Flags Chapter is involved in the community.  Each year members help out in a variety of ways.  Below are the DAR community focused activities that our members take part in.

Our members participate in local Memorial Day Parades, 4th of July activities and Veterans Day events. 

Children of the American Revolution
: Our chapter gives financial support to the local C.A.R. Society, Lexington Alarm, and to the State Organization to help them with their state-wide activities.

Community Service
: Chapter Daughters participate in Celebrate America! by volunteering in a variety of ways in the communities where they live. These hours are recorded online. DAR Daughters have recorded over 12.5 million volunteer hours across the country. We honor an outstanding Community Volunteer each year at the Awards luncheon.

DAR Good Citizens
: We sponsor outstanding Seniors at 9 different high schools each year.  The sponsored Good Citizens are honored at a potluck luncheon in February for their patriotic essays and scholastic, athletic, and community accomplishments.

DAR Schools: Our chapter supports the DAR Schools for underprivileged, abused, or special needs children. 
We support these schools financially and with Box Tops for Technology.

DAR Service for Veterans
: We provide financial support for an Ice Cream Social at Dingell Veteran’s Hospital. Daughters participate in events, parades and programs honoring both retired veterans and active duty military. We donate wreaths for Wreaths Across America at Great Lakes National Cemetary in December so every Veteran’s grave is honored during the holiday season with a wreath and flag.

Lineage Research
: Our members provide assistance with researching for ancestor patriots with perspective members. The registrar makes sure they have the correct proof and have completed their DAR membership application.

Literacy Challenge: Our chapter gives an annual gift of books at Christmas to a tutoring program in southwest Detroit. Our Chapter also donates both adult and children’s books, new and gently used, to the State Literacy Project.

Web links to non-DAR sites are not the responsibility of the NSDAR, the state organizations, or individual DAR Chapters.
