Mount Hyalite Chapter usually participates in the Memorial Day Parade and in the ceremony following the parade at the cemetery. We showcase Constitution Week through a display in the First Security Bank on Main Street. In November we fill bags for veterans in local assisted living and nursing facilities. Members volunteer in veteran organizations such as Warriors in Quiet Waters and Adopt-A-Sox. In addition, our chapter programs often deal with patriotic topics.
Our chapter has donated scrapbooks and pictures to the Gallatin County History Museum for preservation. We joined with the museum and with the Historical Society in Three Forks to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the DAR marker in honor of Sacajawea in Three Forks, Montana, and mapped the other DAR markers in Montana for the Lewis and Clark Expedition. We have placed a DAR memorial marker on the grave of Ella Martin, our founding regent, and have explored the site of Fort Parker. We are also actively involved in on-going conservation activities such as tree planting and recycling.
Mount Hyalite Chapter sponsors both the DAR Good Citizen Contest and the American History Essay Contest. We have had participation from many schools throughout the county and had the 2015 state winner for the 7th grade essay contest. We are supporting the President General’s Project and helping DAR education projects through our contribution of soup labels and box tops. We have also donated books about history and the Constitution to local schools and the Bozeman Public Library.
