The Los Altos Chapter, NSDAR, has been actively involved in serving our community since February 1950. We continue that DAR commitment through activities that promote education, historic preservation, and patriotism. We give an annual scholarship for Foothill Community College, provide support to veterans at the Palo Alto VA Hospital, sponsor an American History essay contest for middle school students, and provide hands-on genealogy workshops for the community.  We present an annual Community Service award and recognition for a Woman in American History.  Chapter members provide hours of community service in the larger Los Altos area.  Most recently, the Chapter compiled a book, Early Settlers of Old Los Altos/Mountain View. (Copies may be downloaded, or printed copies may be viewed at the Santa Clara County Historical & Genealogical Society, the Santa Clara County Library District (housed at the Los Altos branch), the Family History Library in Los Altos, and other selected locations.
