Americanism and DAR Manual for Citizenship
Our chapter distributes the DAR Manual for Citizenship in Dublin, Pleasanton
and San Ramon free of charge, to aspiring American citizens.
Our chapter celebrates Constitution Week each year with displays at our local
libraries. The celebration underscores our continuing dedication to the
study, comprehension, teaching, protection and promotion of the legacy and
heritage of the Constitution of the United States of America.
American History Essay Contest
Each year, the chapter sponsors the American History Essay Contest, open to
all 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade students currently enrolled in public,
private, parochial or qualified home school programs.
American Indian Schools
Our chapter collects Campbell's labels to support the DAR Schools. Labels and
other proofs of purchase from over 1,000 Campbell product varieties are
eligible for redemption in Campbell's Labels for Education Program. We
encourage everyone to take advantage of this great corporate program which
you can use to support the educational facility of your choice.
We also use the Campbell's Labels for Education Program to support the six
DAR schools throughout the United States: Kate Duncan Smith DAR School
(Alabama), Tamassee DAR School (South Carolina), Berry College (Georgia),
Crossnore School (North Carolina), Hillside School Massachusetts) and Hindman
Settlement School (Kentucky).
Good Citizens Award
Our chapter is proud to sponsor the DAR Good Citizens Award, open to all high
school seniors whose personal, scholastic and volunteer record demonstrate
the qualities of good citizenship. These fine young men and women are
nominated and selected by their individual schools for their outstanding
efforts which reflect dependability, service, leadership and patriotism. We
are proud of our community's young adults!
Our members are characterized by an outstanding commitment to service. The
Literacy Challenge, coordinated by the Reading Center, Pleasant Hill, is a
great way to channel energy to help someone else succeed. Volunteers work
one-on-one with adults to increase their reading skills and comprehension.
Their achievements are our reward!
The José María Amador Daughters are proud to sponsor a deserving member of
the ROTC from the Oakland Unified School District. At the second Saturday in
May, we will present a deserving young man or woman with the DAR Good
Citizenship Medal. It's an opportunity to support individuals who are
committed to discipline, education and patriotic service.
Volunteer Information Specialists (VIS)
2000 marked the first year that our chapter has a VIS. As we enter the
21st century, the José María Amador Chapter is dedicated to improving
communication and exchange of information through computer technology.
