The newly-organizing Daughters of the American Revolution chapter, to be named Sister Grove Chapter once officially organized, will gather at the first Christian Church, Van Alstyne Van Alstyne at 6:30 p.m. on June 20. The purpose of the meeting is to provide information to those interested in becoming members or those who are just curious about the organization.
Any woman 18 years or older may become a member once it has been established that she is a direct blood descendant of a patriot of the American Revolution. It is not required for applicants to know how to do the research to find a patriot. There is plenty of assistance available in the process. All women are invited to attend and bring their questions.
From the national organization to the local chapter, DAR provides resources to schools, communities, and civic organizations to strengthen patriotism, honor our nation’s history, and preserve the rich traditions that made our country great. Members are given opportunities to become involved with schools, museums, local civic organizations, veterans and other patriotic/historic activities.
This is an opportunity for local women to become a part of the birth of a new local DAR chapter. Organizing members will be a permanent part of Van Alstyne’s history.
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890 to promote patriotism, preserve American history, and support better education for our nation’s children. Its members are descended from the patriots who won American independence during the Revolutionary War. With more than 165,000 members in approximately 3,000 chapters worldwide, DAR is one of the world’s largest and most active service organizations.
