Our juniors spent a lovely July Saturday morning gardening at the Dyckman House, the oldest farmhouse in Manhattan. Restored in 2003, the Dutch Colonial style farmhouse replaces the original 18th century property that was destroyed during the Revolutionary War while the Dyckman family moved temporarily upstate. Volunteers cleared the front walkway of rambunctious weeds, straightened the edging, trimmed the grass, and built a fence to keep local cats from mistaking a new garden bed for their sandbox.
Continuing their Service to America, chapter juniors volunteered at the Bowery Mission on September 9th. Volunteers assisted with the weekend breakfast service, a core part of the organization’s offering. The Bowery Mission, one of the oldest organizations in New York City ministering to the homeless and hungry since 1879, is a longstanding provider of hope and
purpose to those in need.
New York City Juniors are very proud to continue the DAR tradition of service in support of God, Home, and Country, and look forward to continuing to Move Forward in Service to America.
