For the second consecutive year, Twenty-first Star Chapter, National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution has been recognized by the national organization for outstanding Constitution Week activities.

The chapter was one of 13 receiving National Chairman's Awards at the 2013 annual meeting. There are approximately 3,000 DAR chapters in the United States and abroad.

The chapter's Constitution Week Chairman, Ann Michael, was presented with a North Central Division regional award for "Outstanding Individual Participation, Constitution Week Activities." Earlier in the year Twenty-first Star Chapter was honored at the state level for "Overall Commitment to Excellence in Constitution Week Awareness and Education."

DAR was instrumental in the development of the Public Law passed in 1956 that designates Sept. 17-23 each year as Constitution Week.

Locally, Twenty-first Star Chapter members bring attention to Constitution Week by obtaining proclamations, installing displays, and distributing posters and informational materials. With the support of public officials, schools, and other community organizations Constitution Week becomes a period for increased understanding and appreciation of the Constitution.

Any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background, who can prove lineal decent from a patriot of the American Revolution, is eligible for membership. The DAR recognizes "Patriots: as not only soldiers but also anyone who contributed to the cause of American freedom."
