Santa Clara Chapter, San Jose, California
DAUGHTERS OF THE AMERICAN
Once called "The Valley of Heart's Delight," now called "The Silicon Valley," today's Santa Clara Valley is predominantly an urban area. Fortunately, when there were people with vision to establish industry in order to feed people's minds and bodies, there were also those who foresaw the need to feed people's souls. There are still a few orchards that bloom gloriously each Spring, we have open spaces preserved in the hills so we can still enjoy nature's gifts, and there are magnificent redwood forests in the nearby Santa Cruz mountains.
The Chapter Banner on the right shows a branch of fruit blossoms and purple
plums that symbolize the Valley's agricultural past. In the middle of
each blossom is a computer chip to symbolize the present and the future.
We in the DAR honor our ancestors who helped to found our country. It is important for us to remember that what was done in the past affects our lives today. What we do today will affect the lives of those who follow us.
