Do you have an American Revolutionary patriot in your family tree? We invite you to join us and let us help you find your patriot!
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) is a volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving historical relics and locations, preserving the records of the men and women who achieved American independence, and securing America's future through better education of our nation's youth and much more!
We meet once a month (Sept. - May) and would love for you to join us.
Promotion of Education
Since 2011, the chapter has provided eight young women in Citrus County with scholarships. The state has also given awards to eight applicants our chapter has sponsored, a total of sixteen young women.
The chapter supports the six DAR Schools: Kate Duncan Smith School, Tamassee, Berry College, Crossnore School, Hillside School and Hindman Settlement School. We also support two American Indian schools, Bacone College and Chemawa School.
We partnered with the 50th Vietnam War Commemoration Anniversary in thanking the men and women who fought in this war.
The chapter acknowledges the outstanding JROTC Cadets at the three local high schools, Sea Cadets, and Civil Air Patrol.
We are active in the welcome home ceremonies for returning soldiers, Honor Flight, Wreaths Across America, and Flags For Fallen Veterans. We celebrate Flag Day, Constitution Week, and Veterans Day.
We are active in welcoming newly naturalized citizens.
In 2016, the chapter placed a historical marker at Fort Cooper State Park, our namesake. The chapter has placed a marker at the historical Duvall House in Floral City as well as one at Oak Ridge and Pine Hill Cemeteries.
We have members working on preserving historical DAR documents, genealogy records, preservation, and documenting family bible records.
We support the DAR Museum, and DAR Library, and we supported the preservation of the War of 1812 pensions, just to mention a few.
