Our society will participate in two service projects this year. First, we will put together care packages for two active duty military personnel. At each meeting, our members will bring treats or small gifts to include in the packages.

Second, we plan to join the Utah State DAR in raising money for the nonprofit, Continue Mission. Continue Missions helps vets to integrate into society after war. We hope to raise $3000 to purchase a new recumbent bike.
