The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is a non‑profit, non‑political volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America's future through better education for children.
As members of the Twenty-first Star Chapter DAR we are inspired to preserve and honor the history of our country by sharing it with others. We do this by supporting our veterans, honoring outstanding citizens, promoting historic preservation, and working with our youth.
Our service includes:
- DAR American History Essay Contest
- American History Scholars
- DAR Good Citizens
- Supporting our Military and Veterans
- Hines Veterans Hospital
- American Indians
- DAR Schools
- Literacy Promotion
We meet monthly on Wednesdays or Saturdays from September through June in Park Ridge. Meetings include a light lunch, a business meeting, and a program. Prospective members are always welcome. If you are interested, please contact us.
If you have any questions about the process of membership or need assistance confirming your lineage for membership, we will gladly assist you. Chapter volunteers are available on the third Thursday of the month from 9:00 a.m. until noon from September through May, at the Park Ridge Library’s second floor Reference Department.
We look forward to helping you in your journey to become a part of the DAR, and we look forward to seeing you at our meetings!
