We hold our regular meetings on the third Saturday afternoon of each month September through May, in Lafayette, Colorado, with our anniversary luncheon held in June on the Saturday nearest Flag Day.

In addition to a business meeting, each chapter meeting includes a 20–30-minute program or activity. Programs often have an educational component, such as learning how to decipher archaic script, while others are purely entertainment, such as a presentation by a local storyteller. Educational programs typically focus on historical preservation, education, patriotism, or genealogy. The chapter has also provided interactive show-and-tell programs in which members share a brief story about their patriot or an item of significance in their family history. Members are encouraged to identify program topics that they would like the chapter to provide.   

Our meetings are open to chapter members, their guests, and prospective members. If you would like to attend a meeting or are interested in more information, please contact us using our Contact Us page.
