July 4, 2012, celebrations at
Mill Hill Historic Park
The Norwalk-Village Green Chapter proudly participates in the Independence Day Celebration events at Mill Hill Historic Park. In 2013, the chapter hosted a booth to help local residents learn more about the DAR and how to go start research for the Revolutionary War patriot in your family tree as well as how to complete the paperwork needed for membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution.
Each year the chapter awards a DAR Good Citizen award to a local high school student. The student is selected from one of the three Norwalk high schools. Student applications are submitted by their guidance counselors. This award recognizes and rewards individuals who possess the qualities of dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism in their homes, school, and communities. The 2012 winner's essay was submitted to the state competition and also received an award from CTDAR.
Each year the chapter holds an essay competition. Essays are solicited from all 5th grade classes in Norwalk. Submitted essays are read and judged by committee. There were six awards presented in 2012. For that competition students described a particular person or group and how the supported the cause for American Independence. Winners were presented with certificates, medals and monetary awards.
Each year the Norwalk-Village Green Chapter looks to present a Norwalk-Village Green Chapter Book Award to seniors at the three high schools in Norwalk for outstanding achievement in the study of American History.
