Our meetings are fun! Each month we usually have a speaker as part of our program. Some topics presented this year were:
- Where Denver’s Scandals are Buried
- ROTC Programs
- James K. Jeffrey, Denver Public Library
- History and Preservation of Navajo Textiles
- Legendary Ladies in Celebration of Women’s History Month
The chapter takes an active part in supporting active duty military as well as veterans, and we donated holiday gifts and gift cards to local veterans last December. The Chapter Regent Project has awarded over forty flags in displays boxes that have been flown over the Colorado Capitol to cadets as they take their oath as commissioned officers in our military.
We will be adopting the USS Mahan DDG 72. This is a destroyer that will be deploying in November 2016 and returning in June 2017. We are working on how to share the holiday season with the crew.
We donated to the I Luv You Guys Foundation which supports emergency response training in schools throughout the country. We awarded five Good Citizen Awards to high school seniors and one essay contest winner.
Chapter volunteers attend the monthly naturalization ceremony where they welcome new citizens. In 2015, our members donated over 7,000 hours of community volunteer service through the national “Celebrate America!” initiative.
Looking ahead, we plan to support the Honor Bell Foundation at Ft. Logan Cemetery, adopt a third-grade classroom, and support Girls on the Run.
Service is our guideline, and we have fun reaching our goals!
