America 250!

The United States stands on the eve of a grand milestone. The countdown to the 250th Anniversary of the American Revolutionary War has begun. The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) will be involved in celebrating our nation’s upcoming 250th birthday. Much like the 1976 Bicentennial celebration, this observance provides an opportunity for community involvement. We look forward to seeing you at the events listed below.

Becoming a member of the DAR is a wonderful way to honor and pay tribute to your ancestors who provided service during the American Revolutionary War (1775–1783). We invite you to learn more about MEMBERSHIP in the DAR.
