Del Norte Chapter

Crescent City, California

Chapter Activities and Projects

The Del Norte Chapter of the DAR is about action. Our small, but enthusiastic, chapter has many accomplishments to its credit. Our chapter members selflessly and tirelessly step up to the plate and help raise funds for active military members, veterans, and school students. We host many events to educate and engage the public and raise funds for DAR projects. But in truth, the real benefit is the gratification we get from helping our community, our state, and our nation.

Our chapter in conjunction with the Redwood National and State Parks worked to move the National Tribute Grove Monument to the day use area that is located in the Jed Smith State Park for the ease of access and to re-dedicate the grove.  The 500 acre National Tribute Grove {Largest WWII Monument in the Nation}was dedicated to the personnel and veterans that fought in World War II on September 28th, 1949, by the DAR.  After the National and State Parks moved the monument to it's new location; a re-dedication ceremony celebrating the 65th Anniversary of the monument was held, where speakers from the California State DAR, State and National Parks and Mr. Robert Maxwell (Oldest living WWII recipient of the Medal of Valor) spoke.
