The General Davie Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is located in Durham, North Carolina. We celebrated our chapter’s centennial in 2011. Supporting our veterans and active service military is a key focus for our chapter. In 2012 we sent 317 hats — knitted or crocheted by members and friends — to our troops in Afghanistan. Activities at the Durham Veterans Administration (VA) Hospital include: a “Patriot’s Party,” donations of clothing, games, and comfort items, and supplying flowers for the quarterly memorial services. We also participate in the “Wreaths Across America” program and recognition of ROTC and JROTC students.

Our support of education includes Constitution Week programs, contributions to Crossnore and Tamassee schools, and a local scholarship.

The DAR was founded in 1890 with the simple mission of promoting historic preservation, education and patriotism. These timeless principles keep the organization strong and vitally relevant in this ever-changing world.
