Activities

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


Spring Fling         CTDAR luncheon. (May)
Veterans Awareness Day          Held at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut, 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 American Revolutionary War and interact with students about that period in our nation’s history. (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 occurred on June 14, 1777, by resolution of the Second Continental Congress.

David Wooster Day - Fort Wooster, New Haven, Connecticut 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 Rindge, New Hampshire, the 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 the 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.

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. (September)

Chapter members participate by performing many tasks including cooking and serving food.
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)
