The chapter is officially enrolled in Wreaths Across America and sponsoring Templeton District Cemetery.                                   

The group will honor and remember fallen heroes by sponsoring remembrance wreaths. They began on Saturday, December 14, by laying remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country’s fallen heroes.

By working with coordinator Lawrence Mora from the American Legion Post 220, all 350 veterans' graves have a wreath. Saturday morning there was a great group of volunteers, members from American Legion Post 220, Templeton 4H, along with friends and family. This will be an ongoing service project.

The DAR, which is comprised of the descendants of the patriots who won American independence, was founded on October 11, 1890, as a service organization to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism.

El Paso de Robles Chapter, NSDAR, will celebrate 70 years of service to the community on February 25, 2020, and continues to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism.

Local Daughters of the American Revolution chapter seek signing of Constitution Week Proclamation 

Posted:4:09am: September 11, 2019                                                                                                                                     by News Staff                                                                                                                                                     The week of Sept. 17-23, Constitution Week, is the commemoration of America’s most important document. El Paso de Robles Chapter, NSDAR, has sent requests to the Paso Robles Mayor Steven Martin, Superintendent Kurt Dubost, Assist Superintendent Gene Miller, Superintendent of Templeton Schools, Principal Nate Maas, Assist Principal Tom Harrington, Superintendent Kristine Benson, Principal Tim Vincent and Principal Erin Haley to seek a signing of a Proclamation designating Sept. 17- 23 as Constitution Week. It is celebrated annually through local schools, and El Paso de Robles Chapter would like to promote community awareness of the responsibility to protect, defend, and preserve the Constitution.

The Daughters of the American Revolution initiated the observance in 1955, when the organization petitioned the U.S. Congress to dedicate September 17–23 of each year to the commemoration of Constitution Week. Congress adopted the resolution, and on August 2, 1956, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed it into Public Law #915. The celebration’s goals are threefold: to encourage the study of the historical events that led to the framing of the Constitution in September 1787; to inform people that the Constitution is the basis of America’s great heritage and the foundation of our way of life; and to emphasize U.S. citizens’ responsibility to protect, defend, and preserve the Constitution.

El Paso de Robles Chapter, NSDAR, elpasoderobles.californiadar.org, is an active chapter honoring our ancestors who fought for our nation’s independence. El Paso de Robles Chapter, NSDAR, will celebrate 70 years of service to the community Feb. 25, 2020, and will continue to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism.

The DAR is one of the largest women’s lineage based, patriotic nonprofits in the world. With over 125 years of tradition, more than 930,000 members admitted since its founding. Continued since their founding in 1890, close to one million members have carried out that mission.
