Welcome to the La Jolla Chapter DAR
The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is a non-profit, non-political, volunteer service organization made up of over 175,000 members worldwide with 3,000 chapters. These chapters are located in all 50 states and in many countries around the world. On October 11, 1890, 18 women met to officially organize the NSDAR for historic, educational, and patriotic purposes. Since that day, over 800,000 members have been admitted into membership.
The La Jolla Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, was organized May 16, 1949, by Miss Angeline E. Allen, the organizing regent. Meeting activities are focused on three objectives of the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution: historic preservation, education, and patriotism.
Recently, we have enjoyed speakers about archaeology, anthropology, and Native Americans. We often invite speakers to our meetings to deepen our knowledge of local issues and programs, American history and heritage, the current state of the U.S. armed forces, and the work of our National Society.
Officially associated with the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution, our members are active in supporting DAR causes, including fundraising for the many charitable projects of the DAR.
