Chapter Activity

Members of the Sarah Riggs Humphreys-Mary Silliman Chapter (SRH-MS) are involved in various DAR committees which support annual chapter community programs, recognition awards, and donations to other area agencies that support veterans and families.

Our Valentines for Vets program delivers handmade Valentine cards and goodie bags or toiletries to veterans in local nursing homes in February.

In June, our chapter invites the public to our annual Flag Day program.

In September, we celebrate Constitution Week to commemorate the historical events surrounding the creation of the U.S. Constitution. We work with local cities and towns to issue proclamations, and distribute bookmarks and posters to libraries.

On Veterans Day we have served free donuts and coffee at the Shelton Veterans Day Ceremony for over 10 years.  This year we suspended this activity due to COVID-19.  Instead, we honored our veterans with a Virtual Driving Tour of the Veterans Monuments and Memorials of Shelton, Derby and Ansonia.  To view the tour, click this link:  Virtual Driving Tour of Veterans Monuments and Memorials in Shelton, Derby and Ansonia

This is just a sample of the work our chapter accomplishes thanks to our members’ involvement in our various committees.
