Activities

The Mary Clap Wooster Chapter participates in a wide variety of educational, patriotic, and community-building activities in Connecticut. Some of the vibrant events that we participate in are described below.

Annual Cherry Blossom Festival - Wooster Square, New Haven Enjoy live music and food while meeting community members and promoting membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution. (April)
Veterans Awareness Day          Held at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, this event aims to build increased awareness of the Memorial Day weekend to enhance students' understanding of the freedoms we often take for granted.
We represent the Revolutionary War and interact with students about that period in our nation’s history. (May)
Spring Fling         Special luncheon. (May)
Flag Day      

Chapter luncheon with various presentations.  (June)

In the United States, Flag Day is celebrated on June 14. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened that day by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in 1777.

David Wooster Day - Fort Wooster, New Haven Music, picnic, and hike as we celebrate the anniversary of the Battle of New Haven. (July)
Cathedral of the Pines  

Ceremony to honor veterans. (August)

Located in New Hampshire, Cathedral of the Pines is one of New England's most moving and spiritual places. Situated on a secluded hilltop amidst spindly, fragrant pines with glorious Grand Monadnock Mountain as its backdrop, this nondenominational sanctuary is a place to reflect, to give thanks for nature's beauty, to honor those who have served America and to worship in whatever way suits you.

Massing of the Colors       The Massing of the Colors is a patriotic ceremony to rededicate our faith in the colors of the United States and to present our support to those Colors and of the Servicemen and women those Colors represent. It combines the colors and color guards of Active and Reserve Component military units, veterans’ organizations, civic, and patriotic organizations. (October)
Wreaths Across America  Ceremony and placing of wreaths on veterans’ graves. (December)
Stand Down      Every year, the Connecticut Department of Veterans Affairs conducts a full day event called “Stand Down” to provide free assistance and service information to homeless and indigent veterans of our state. Chapter members participate by performing many tasks including cooking and serving food.
