AK Smiley Redlands Library :: DAR Arrowhead Valley Chapter receives statewide award

DAR Arrowhead Valley Chapter receives statewide award

The Arrowhead Valley Chapter of the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution recently received the state DAR’s second-place award for the number of hours chapter members spent tutoring adults learning to read.

The Redlands-based chapter received the award after 114 chapters in California reported their volunteer activities.

The chapter’s literacy committee began its work in 2013, through the A.K. Smiley Public Library’s adult literacy program, and is expanding its involvement in adult education to include service at colleges with programs for foster youth.
