American History and genealogy are an important aspect of the DAR, and the Jauflione Chapter shares the objectives of the National Society, to promote patriotism, education, and historical preservation. Since its inception, Jauflione Daughters have actively been involved in obtaining historical data from local cemeteries and copying county records, which they have provided to the National Society. As part of a bi-centennial project, Daughters created a needlepoint block, which was placed in a quilt that is on display at the Missouri state capitol; and a time capsule was made and stored in an attic to be opened in 2076. Others wrote family histories and recorded them in "Scotland County in Retrospect," a book compiled and issued especially for the bi-centennial of our nation.
In the past, our chapter has given flags to the Memphis Cemetery for
the Avenue of Flags and to local organizations. Family Bible records
have been sent to NSDAR. Cards of cheer were sent to the Iranian hostages.
Books and DAR magazines have been given to the Scotland County Library.
Dorothy Aylward, DAR member, gave many programs on American Indians.
A ship design quilt block was made for the 500th year anniversary of
Christopher Columbusí discovery of America.
We are TODAY'S DAR!"
