About Us

California DAR volunteering

Sierra Amador took its name from beautiful Amador County where we meet, and the Sierra Nevada range of which our county is a part. We were organized June 26, 2006, as a chapter in the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR). We have more than seventy members from all backgrounds ranging in age from twenty-two to ninety-five. We meet nine times a year from September through May in Jackson, a gold-rush town established in 1850. Our meetings usually include a potluck lunch, a business meeting and a guest speaker on a topic of interest to all.

We participate in various activities of the National Society such as:

  • Conducting essay contests for local students
  • Supporting our troops with care packages
  • Sending¬†care packages and lap robes to military hospitals for our wounded warriors
  • Participating in various community service projects
  • Awarding DAR Good Citizens pins and certificates to local students
  • Participating in DAR American Heritage contests
  • Providing speakers to local organizations to share the news of DAR
  • Contributing to DAR approved schools, including Native American schools
  • Providing phone cards for soldiers

We participate in local parades, wreath laying ceremonies, library displays during Constitution Week, and fund raising activities.
