Vieux Carre' Chapter
Located in New Orleans, LA
Chapter Meetings- 1st Saturday of most months
Meeting Time- 12:00pm
The Vieux Carre Chapter was organized in 1956 especially for career women. Saturday meetings were chosen for this reason. The organizing chapter regent was Mrs. Camilla Mays Frank. Over the years many working and non-working women have contributed their time and talents to chapter projects.
Vieux Carre chapter members serve in the Veterans Hospitals, plant butterfly gardens, and work on genealogical records. Some of their activities include:
the VA Stand Down in October, for homeless veterans
Wreaths Across America at the Chalmette Cemetery
sending coupons to military families
annual Christmas party and present drive for a veteran's family in need
In 2019, the chapter's National Day of Service project provided household items such as dishes, cookware, and linens for women and families who suffer from domestic violence. Members worked with the New Orleans Family Justice Center.
This chapter has many "seasoned members" who make a point of helping new members become involved in DAR. Nearly 16% of the chapter's members are Juniors who bring energy and vitality to the chapter's projects.
