Current Projects Our Chapter Actively Supports

 


Veterans Hospital -

Our chapter has an ongoing relationship with the Samuel S. Stratton Veterans Administration Medical Center in Albany. We provide toiletries, magazines, and afghans which are used to welcome veterans when they are checked in. 

 


Children of the American Revolution Society Reinstatement -

In 1907 our DAR chapter started the Schuyler Society of the C.A.R. We reinstated that C.A.R. society in 2003. Our mission is to instill an appreciation for the history of our countryís founding, to encourage leadership and citizenship, and to have some fun seeing and reliving the history of our area. Our Mansion website has more information at VanSchaickMansion.org , or go to the National Society Children of the American Revolution website at www.nscar.org .

 


Honoring our Ancestors- Ancestor and Veteranís Memorials

We hold annual services in the Albany Rural Cemetery at the graves of our General Peter Gansevoort; our founder, Catherine Gansevoort Lansing; and our DAR Real Daughter, Elizabeth Weed.  Chapter members maintain the graves and plant flowers prior to the services.

Cleaning the Grave Site of our Chapters Founder

In our effort to honor our ancestors, we identify ďAncestor MemorialsĒ and place markers on veteransí graves which are unmarked or have damaged tombstones. 

We have marked gravesites for patriots of the American Revolution. We have researched veterans from other conflicts to help the organization, Forgotten Warriors, to provide tombstones.

We plan to restore tombstones in the Van Schaick Cemetery next to our house.
