DAR objectives are Historic Preservation, Education, and Patriotism

Education: DAR supports several schools for disadvantaged or disabled young people. Our chapter proudly lends financial support to this effort. We also support education and youth by contributing to the many scholarships offered by the National Society. 

Patriotism: We join Daughters around the world in support of our military, both active and veteran status. Our chapter participates in Honor Flights to the Nation's Capital, provides care packages to deployed troops, and provides needed supplies to local VA centers. 
Historic Preservation: The DAR has many historic preservation projects, including the restoration of its headquarters in Washington, D.C. Every chapter seeks to provide financial support and opportunities to better our communities. 

Falls Church Veterans Day Ceremony

During the Falls Church Veterans Day Remembrance Ceremony, Chapter Regent Lisa Maloney placed a wreath honoring our Nation’s veterans. The keynote speaker was Beverly Donner, a former Commander with the Public Health Service assigned to the surgical team in Danang, Vietnam where she treated civilian casualties. On behalf of the City of Falls Church and the NSDAR, Chapter First Vice Regent Lori Ramirez presented 50th Anniversary Commemorative pins to Beverly and her husband who also served during the Vietnam War.

Falls Church Mayor Proclaims Veterans Day

Lyn Sherlock provided remarks to the City Council and submitted the proclamation on behalf of the Falls Church Chapter, NSDAR, and the Greater Falls Church Veterans Council. The proclamation was signed by Falls Church Mayor David Tarter. Lyn invited Veterans and family members to join in accepting the proclamation. Also accepting were Chapter members Lisa Maloney and Jennifer Inskeep, Virginia State Registrar. It read in part:

Whereas, throughout the history of the United States, men and women in uniform have risked their lives to protect the country’s interests and defend our freedoms; and Whereas, these sacrifices are also made by the family members who support the men and women who preserve the liberties that enrich the Nation; and Whereas, the United States of America has long stood as a beacon of hope and opportunity, and this spirit by members of the Armed Forces...who are part of an unbroken chain of brave patriots who have served our country with honor and made tremendous sacrifices so that we may live free; and Whereas, it is fitting and proper to officially recognize the patriotic celebrations to commemorate the occasion, including the annual Veterans Day Ceremony.
