  • Sponsor American History essay contests for students
  • Award scholarships to area high school seniors
  • Donate books to libraries
  • Volunteer and support for area literacy programs
  • Sponsor genealogical workshops


  • Distribute Flags and patriotic material to new citizens, schools and community groups
  • Award DAR Good Citizen and Youth Citizenship medals to area youth

  • Support area conservation efforts including reforestation and beautification
  • Participate in area events celebrating and commemorating patriotic holidays
  • Sponsor the John Paul Jones Society (Children of the American Revolution) for youth under the age of 22

We are a non-profit, non-political, women’s service organization that meets regularly and enjoys the society of enthusiastic and patriotic women. We welcome new members who are able to document their direct lineage to an ancestor who served the American War For Independence either as a soldier or as a citizen who aided the effort.

Please visit our Patriot page and contact us for help with your family genealogy.  We would be pleased to invite you to one of our meetings.
