Committees

Indian Peaks Chapter members are actively involved in projects benefiting our community, state, and country. From knitting baby blankets and lap robes for area hospitals to planting trees and indexing genealogical records, we support the objectives of the National Society: to promote patriotism, historic preservation and education.  You can see some of our members in action in our Photo Gallery.

Members of the Indian Peaks Chapter, NSDAR are delighted to join other Colorado chapters, the Colorado State DAR, and National Society in service to our communities. Most of the significant work of the DAR is done at the grassroots level through individual chapters. Each chapter has its own programs and initiatives based on the DAR’s mission and guidance from the state and national leadership. Our committees are the base of our chapter’s involvement in our communities, providing our members numerous opportunities to serve DAR objectives that are most valuable to each person. Some of the committees we enthusiastically support include:
