We are excited to announce that our State Recipe Calendar is now available to purchase. The sale of this calendar is a part of our ongoing, fundraising efforts. All our members work on a voluntary basis, and 100% of the profits made, go to charities here in Colorado and to the British Home for the elderly in California. These calendars will make great Christmas gifts for those Anglophiles in your life and will put a smile on every Brit's face with all the recipes that remind us of home! Every recipe has been prepared and taste tested by a great group of ladies. Such sacrifice! LOL
We would encourage you to place your orders soon with your local regent, as there is a limited amount available or you can contact Liz at email@example.com to place your order! Each Calendar is 12x24 when hung. Printed on quality glossy paper, the recipes and photos are at the top and the calendar at the bottom. The cost per calendar is $20 with additional shipping if needed.
Thank you so much for your continued support as we navigate our way though fundraising while social distancing.

Last years Victorian Tea was as always, a huge success! We had a full house with ladies dressed in their fancy frocks and fancy hats! The food was delightful, the tea plentiful. Our vendors, raffle prizes and 'Victorian guests' really made this event special! Check out the details of this years Tea!
For almost a century, Daughters of the British Empire has been a common bond for women of British heritage living in the U.S. We invite you to learn more about joining one of the DBE chapters in Colorado.

Recently the Commonwealth Rose chapter made a meal, and served it, for the Women's Homeless Initiative's Monday night shelter at St. John's Episcopal Cathedral in Denver. The menu was cottage pie, salad, home made bread, and a chocolate layer pie along with a variety of sodas. We prepared food for 36: 25 overnight shelter guests and several overnight volunteers and there was not a crumb left! We had fun doing it and it was much appreciated by the homeless women and volunteers alike.
