Historic  Preservation

Major Pierson B. Reading Chapter initiated and completed a monument at the “Reading Adobe Site,” as listed on the California Historical Register. The monument was dedicated at a very special ceremony on May 18, 1990, bringing guests from all over the country including family relations, California state representatives and many friends of the family. The marker was unveiled and marked Major Pierson B. Reading as a California historical figure. 

Patriotism

We participate in Memorial Day and Veterans Day ceremonies in local communities. Our chapter serves Shasta, Tehema, Trinity, and Lassen counties. We regularly celebrate our veterans and have honored Vietnam veterans, presenting them with chapter and California State Society Certificates of Appreciation for their services, and inviting them to meetings for recognition and a reception. We invite the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) to join us on these occasions. We have handed out flags during Constitution week as well as posters, banners, and information on the Constitution. Our chapter albums speak of the many activities participated in over the years, the planting of trees being a major contribution throughout the Redding area during the 1990s. Organized with community effort a 911 Memorial dedication in Shasta Lake City the following year that includes a portion of one of the towers within the monument. Our chapter donated a California state flag to fly permanently at the monument. 

Education

We provide flag documents to schools, participate in our Heritage Faire by providing information on DAR and our chapter, and offer a genealogy day of workshops annually for the past 15 years.
