Each year, the Hannah Benedict Carter Chapter presents the DAR’s Community Service Award in recognition of outstanding contribution to the community through civic, benevolent, or heroic acts by citizens from a variety of walks of life. The recipient(s) must have outstanding voluntary service in cultural, educational, humanitarian, patriotic, historical, citizenship, environmental conservation, or organized community endeavors.
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890 to promote patriotism, preserve American history, and support better education for our nation's children. Its members are descended from the patriots who won American independence during the Revolutionary War. With more than 175,000 members in approximately 3,000 chapters worldwide, DAR is one of the world's largest and most active service organizations.
