The Doctor Susan Anderson Chapter, NSDAR, was organized 12 January 2008, in Arvada, CO
Our chapter is named in honor of Doctor Susan Anderson (1870-1960). She graduated with a medical degree from medical school in Ann Arbor, Michigan. In 1907, she moved to Fraser, Colorado; where she thought the high mountain air could improve her health. ‘Doc Susie’, as the local folks called her, treated people in several towns along the railway. She delivered babies, cared for the sick, treated injuries of the ranchers, farmers, railway and tunnel workers, logging men, and sometimes even animals! She cared for people during the major influenza epidemic of 1918. In 1926, she became the Coroner of Grand County. As a professional, she inspired young girls to pursue lives beyond the drudgery of most women of that era.
The Doctor Susan Anderson Chapter, NSDAR, is an active group of women of all ages – from college students, career women, to homemakers and retirees. For those who have various commitments during the day, consider joining us for an evening dinner meeting full of sharing and various DAR activities. The Doctor Susan Anderson Chapter, NSDAR, meets September through May on a weekday, except for two Saturday luncheon meetings in January and May.
Please join us for a Prospective Member Workshop. Our member buddies will assist with the basic information you will need to complete an application for membership in the DAR. Bring your laptop if you have one!
Our next workshop will be Thursday, September 26, 2019, 6 – 8:00 p.m. at the Whisper Creek Police Station Community Room, 14360 W. 89th Drive, Arvada, CO.
