Promoting Historic Preservation, Education, and Patriotism

Buckeye Valley Chapter, NSDAR, strives to fulfill the objectives of the Daughters of the American Revolution in the areas of historic preservation, education, and patriotism. Each year, we choose service projects our chapter members can perform together or separately. We also attend patriotic events and encourage our members to perform community service.


With many service-oriented opportunities in DAR, our members can find meaningful activities to choose from that further these objectives, several of which are described below. If you are interested in joining us or learning more about DAR membership, contact us for information on our meeting dates and location.

Community Involvement

Business meetings include “Historical Moments” with reports on key events in each month. Monthly meetings often include speaker programs from local organizations, such as Helping At Risk Teens, Arizona Friends of Foster Children, or American history, such as the Pilgrim Pups and Rosie the Riveter.  A chapter member has created Patriots Storytelling, detailing figures in the American Revolutionary War and entertained us with her story-telling.


We host a “Grab Bag” booth at the annual Buckeye Halloween Carnival, a patriotic float in the Veterans Day parade, and a float in the Christmas “Glow on Monroe” parade. We sponsor booths in the spring and fall Buckeye Demolition Derby.



Educational activities include the awarding of the DAR Good Citizens Award and Scholarship, which comes with monetary gifts and certificates, to students from three Buckeye Union District high schools. We collect Box Tops for Education for the Cacone College, Chemawa Indian School. We have contributed to Buckeye Union High School Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) and Cheer groups. We also sponsor our chapter scholarship for a Buckeye high school graduate in the second, third, or fourth year of college.



Patriotic activities include posting 60 chapter US Flags along Monroe Avenue (main street) on five patriotic holidays, presentation of the DAR JROTC medal, certificate, and monetary gift to a cadet from the Buckeye Union High School Air Force JROTC.


Activities for Constitution Week include participation in the NSDAR Bells Across America and a display at the Coyote branch of the Buckeye Library for September.


Veterans’ activities include the placing of US Flags on veterans’ graves as part of the annual Memorial Day service. In the past, we have won several awards for our chapter float in the Buckeye Veterans Day parade. We also participate in the local Veterans Lift Up event which offers programs, services, and information specifically for veterans.
