Some of our service projects include photographing graves at Oaklawn Cemetery in Hattiesburg and uploading them to Find a Grave. We are also cleaning the tombstones. Members and others conduct a tour of Oaklawn Cemetery with reenactments at different gravesites.
We volunteer at a local school that helps children who have been at risk in the public school. We sponsor the American History Essay Contest and award the DAR Good Citizen at local schools. We attend naturalization ceremonies and welcome the new citizens.
We promote Constitution Week, present medals for ROTC and Jr. ROTC, support troops serving overseas with care packages, volunteer at the Veteran's Home in Collins, MS, and support the Christmas Shoppe at the Jackson, MS, VA hospital.
