Chapter Activities and Projects
The Del Norte Chapter, NSDAR, 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. Photo courtesy of Wendy Malone.

National Tribute Grove Monument
Our chapter, in conjunction with the National Park Service and the California State Park Service, worked to move the National Tribute Grove monument to the day-use area that is located in the Jedediah Smith State Park for the ease of access and to re-dedicate the grove. The 500-acre National Tribute Grove, the largest World War II monument in the nation, was dedicated by the DAR to the personnel and veterans that fought in World War II on September 28, 1949. After the monument was moved to its new location, a re-dedication ceremony celebrating the 65th anniversary of the monument was held, where speakers from the California State Society DAR, National Park Service and the California State Park Service, and Robert Maxwell, the oldest living World War II recipient of the Medal of Valor, spoke.

Rocky Peterson Memorial Flagpole at Peterson Park in Crescent City, California.
Rocky Peterson Memorial Flagpole at Peterson Park in Crescent City, California. Rocky Peterson was a local boy that grew up in Crescent City, California. He was drafted out of our local high school to play professional baseball. Rocky set his career aside and joined the United States Navy in 1940 and was stationed at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. On December 7, 1941, Rocky was killed when his ship, the U.S.S. Arizona, was sunk by the Japanese. The Del Norte Chapter, NSDAR, received a grant to assist in the funding of this memorial to Rocky's memory. With the assistance of the city of Crescent City and engineer Michael Young, the monument was completed and dedicated in April 2017. Present for the dedication were NSDAR state and national officers and public officials from Crescent City and the county of Del Norte.
