We had a total of 18 members by the end of the first year. Since then we have seen our membership grow to over 40 members at the present time. Our chapter has had 12 chapter regents: Several of our members have served at the state and national level: Loretta Genn has served as state corresponding secretary; Ruth McCormick and Mary Jane DeLosier have served as Oklahoma state chaplain; Doris Hargis served as Green Country district director; and Nelliejeannee Kennedy has served on four national and two state chairmanships.
This action came about in when we lost our first member, Betty Fox, and wished to honor her by placing the DAR marker on her grave. Since that time we have lost and so honored 15 of our members, and also assisted two of our members in placing DAR markers on the grave of one member's grandmother, and the graves of two sisters of another member -- all DAR members.
In the past 32 years, we have encouraged the respect and proper display of the Flag of the United States of America.
A flag was presented to the Claremore Progress Daily Newspaper in recognition of its th birthday. Our chapter gives the Flag Code booklet to all third graders in Rogers County -- over each year.
We have costumed holiday celebrations, membership teas, and to accommodate our working members we have a family-night dinner each year.
We have also sponsored national winners.– DAR Patriotic Service Appreciation Award Presented to HCHS Band Students – James Stewart Chapter DAR and Hardees to Honor Heard County Veterans – Women in American History Awards Presented by NSDAR.
