For more than a century, the members of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution have dedicated themselves to historical preservation, promotion of education, and encouragement of patriotic endeavor.

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) was established in 1890. It is a non-profit and non-political organization. There are nearly 180,000 members in approximately 3,000 chapters in the United States and throughout other parts of the world.

We are always eager to explain to people what the DAR does and what it stands for, and are thrilled to find new members.

Any woman 18 years 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. DAR defines a "patriot" as one who provided service or direct assistance in achieving America's independence.

Our meetings are held the second Saturday of each month, September through May.  We have programs with historic, educational, patriotic, and National Defense themes. Please contact our Regent for the time and place of our meetings.

WHY JOIN THE DAR?

The DAR gives members an opportunity for service in many areas. DAR membership is a way to join with other members in trying to make America a better place in which to live.

It offers an opportunity to work with the youth of this great country through the educational programs offered by the NSDAR. DAR membership offers encouragement to become active in the community, to assist in historic preservation, to help preserve important documents, and records of the past.

It offers an opportunity to meet new people with similar interests, develop friendships, and to join with others who cherish the priceless heritage enjoyed by all while promoting the ideals of patriotism and love of country. In addition, DAR membership offers an incentive to become involved in conservation of our natural resources and to make a difference by doing so.

Our Objectives
HISTORICAL -- To perpetuate the memory and spirit of the men and women who achieved American independence.

EDUCATIONAL -- To carry out the injunction of Washington in his farewell address to the American people, "to promote, as an object of primary importance, institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge, thus developing an enlightened public opinion."

PATRIOTIC -- To cherish, maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom, to foster true patriotism and love of country, and to aid in securing for mankind all the blessings of liberty.


We warmly welcome prospective members. If you are interested in membership into DAR and Three Rivers Chapter, please contact our Registrar:

The DAR Junior American Citizen Program

The Junior American Citizen Program was formed to promote good citizenship, an appreciation of American history and knowledge of our heritage. The JAC Contest is open to all pre-school through 12th grade students in public, private, and parochial schools and in sanctioned home study programs, including those students who may be physically or mentally challenged or in gifted/talented programs. This contest is conducted without regard to race, religion, sex, or national origin.

All entries must follow the theme and meet the specifications of the category entered. Posters, stamps, and photographic essays must be individual work only. Banners must be group entries only. Community service projects may be by individuals or groups. Please note that pre-school and kindergarten students may compete in banner and group community services projects only. A group is defined as three or more students. Groups are to determine the grade level at which the contest is to be entered by averaging the grade level of all participants.

The DAR Good Citizens Program and Scholarship Contest

This program is intended to encourage and reward the qualities of good citizenship. The program is open to all senior class students enrolled in accredited public or private secondary schools that are in good standing with their State Boards of Education. United States citizenship is not required.

The student selected as the school’s DAR Good Citizen must have the qualities of Dependability (which includes truthfulness, loyalty, and punctuality); Service (which includes cooperation, courtesy, and consideration of others); Leadership (which includes personality, self-control, and ability to assume responsibility); and Patriotism (which includes unselfish interest in family, school, community and nation) to an outstanding degree.

Each school’s DAR Good Citizen receives a DAR Good Citizen pin and certificate. That student is then eligible and has the option to enter the scholarship portion of the contest, judged on personal goals, accomplishments, and a written essay.

American History Essay

The purpose of the American History Committee is to promote American history throughout the year by honoring significant historical people, places, dates, and events. All grade 5, 6, 7, and 8 students in a public, private, or parochial school, or those who are home schooled are eligible.

"Our emblem is a gold wheel
Banded with deepest blue

Each shining spoke tipped with a star

The distaff shining through;

The only jewel in the world

That money cannot buy

Without such proof of ancestry

As no one can deny."

THE HUB: Each loyal Daughter's heart

EACH SPOKE: A thought of those from whom we part;

THE TIE: A noble life well rounded out;

EACH STAR: A deed of kindness as we go about

EACH FLAXEN THREAD: A cord of love to bind us closer day by day;

THE DISTAFF: A rod of love to guide us all the way.
