Who We Are


Carbon Valley Chapter, NSDAR, History

The organization of the Carbon Valley Chapter, NSDAR, began in 2016. The following women began working on a new chapter for the tri-town areas of Dacono, Firestone, Frederick, and Mead, Colorado: Past State Regent Peggy Norton; Organizing Secretary Patty Ament; Organizing Chapter Regent Debra Brodhead; Nelda Pennington; and Kristine Scott.

The first planning meeting was held in August 2016 and a genealogical workshop was held in October 2016 at the Carbon Valley Library in Firestone, Colorado. On April 1, 2017, the chapter held its organizing meeting at the Carbon Valley Library in Firestone with 13 members and several guests. The National Board of Management confirmed the chapter on April 5, 2017.

Organizing Chapter Regent Debbie Brodhead worked with U.S. Senator Cory Gardner from Colorado to have a United States flag flown over our national capitol on April 5, 2017, in honor of this confirmation. This is now our chapter flag. Veteran Larry Bruntz created a special gavel and presented it to the chapter at the organizing meeting.
