                                                          stones
We learned to clean old tombstones without harming them.
Now we can clean veterans' markers.


Just like you, we volunteer -
at church, in nursing homes, with/for the veterans,
at schools and libraries, protecting history
and our earth, adding up to more than
2,400 hours this year.

Presenting a certificate to Jim Lee's siblings

We go on field trips to learn about interesting places in our area.
Friends, mothers, husbands (HODARs) joined us on our trip to historic Montauk.

On the Fort Atkinson trip, we had lots of fresh air and exercise along with our information. And the comment, "You remember when we were looking for those monuments?" always brings a good memory and stories of many small trips around northeast Iowa.
Re-dedicating the marker When the "monument search" couldn't locate the DAR plaque at Fort Atkinson, one member began searching on her own. She has received permission from the Iowa DNR and the Iowa State DAR to replace the missing plaque!
