Proud to be a DAR

November 9, 2013

To the editor:

Yes, I’ proud and honored to be a DAR (Daughter of the American Revolution).

DAR has served America for 123 years as its foremost cheerleader. Known as the largest women’s patriotic organization in the world, DAR has 175,000 members with approximately 3,000 chapters in all 50 states and 13 foreign countries. The DAR has long promoted patriotism through commemorative celebrations, memorials, scholarships and activities for children, and programs for new immigrants.

We are proud of our DAR schools in this country.

Kate Duncan Smith School, Alabama; Berry College, Georgia; Crossnore School, North Carolina; Hillside School, Inc. in Massachusetts; Hindman Settlement School, Kentucky; and our own S.C. DAR school in Tammassee where deserving girls and boys are given a home, a school, and a chance in life. Over $1 million is given annually by DAR to support these schools.

If you are 18 years of age or older, and lineally descended from a patriot, who aided in the cause during the American Revolution, you are eligible for membership in DAR. Join us! DAR is looking for you!

For more information about how to apply for membership in DAR please contact me.
