Ottawa Chapter Activities



On December 17, 2016, the Ottawa Chapter DAR participated in National Wreaths Across America, by placing wreaths on the graves of veterans  at the St. Clair Allied Veterans Cemetery in Port Huron, MI.


There are 800 veterans graves in the Allied Veterans Cemetery.  The Ottawa Chapter DAR purchased 60 wreaths in 2016..  Members helped place the wreaths on veterans graves after a brief memorial service.

Kudos to all who braved the snow - notice the complete lack of snow at the ceremoney in 2015.

Ottawa Chapter hosted the annual Southeastern Michigan DAR Picnic at the Richmond Community Center, 

July 2016, with 9 chapters represented.

In June 2016, the Daughters and friends  took a tour of historic landmarks on the Blue Water Trolley.

Tour organizer LaCinda Anderson (3rd from left), organized the tour which helped raise funds to support the Ottawa Chapter DAR.

 The trolley stopped at a Michigan Historic Site: the First International Tunnel, Port Huron, MI.

Another stop on the trolley tour:  This monument marks the site of Fort Gratiot, built in 1814 by Captain Charles Gratiot.The fort guarded the US and Canadian border.  The monument, located on Thomas Edison Parkway in Port Huron,  is registered with the National Society DAR.
