Hagen honored as Plover’s DAR junior member
Nay-osh-ing Chapter in Plover of Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) selected Sara Hagen as the Chapter’s Outstanding Junior Member.
Sara became a Nay-osh-ing Chapter DAR member in October 2012, and the recognition is given to young women who make important contributions to the DAR. Sara is also a nominee for Wisconsin DAR State Outstanding Junior. A Junior Member of the DAR is between the ages of 18 and 36 years.
Sara serves as the librarian for the Nay-osh-ing Chapter where she is actively involved. On the state level, she has served as personal page to the Wisconsin DAR State Regent and is currently a co-chair of the WSDAR Junior Membership committee. On the national level, she has attended the annual convention in Washington, D.C., and served as personal page to the NSDAR president general when she visited Wisconsin.
In the community, Sara plays the violin and sings in her family’s musical group as they visit assisted living facilities, homebound people and others.
The Wreaths Across America project is one of Sara’s favorite charities. She helps decide which deceased veteran’s grave the Nay-osh-ing Chapter will honor with wreaths each year as Nay-osh-ing chapter members remember fallen U.S. veterans, honor those who serve and teach children the value of freedom.
She also helps craft 12-inch Christmas Trees for the troops in the Middle East as part of the Trees From Home nonprofit begun by past WSDAR State Regent Julie Stuhlmacher.
Any woman 18 years of age or older, regardless of race, religion or ethnic background who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution is eligible for membership in the DAR.
