Welcome to the Governor Bradford Chapter. where patriotism is celebrated every day and
has been for more than 100 years!
   

How things have changed in our country and the world since 1908 when Minnie Blose and several other ladies met to form our chapter.  The chapter was named for Minnie Blose' ancestor, Governor William Bradford, of the Plymouth Colony.  

One thing that has not changed, however, is our chapter's commitment to God, Home, and Country.  We believe in preserving the past, enhancing the present, and investing in the future.  There is something for everyone in Today's DAR.  Whether you are passionate about the environment or education -- health or history -- students or soldiers -- there is a place for you in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR).  Any woman aged 18 or older, may join DAR by documenting her lineage to an ancestor, either male or female, who materially aided in the cause of American independence through military, civil, or patriotic service. DAR volunteers can guide you in the application process as you search for your ancestors.  You can learn more about DAR membership here.

Won't you consider joining us?  Contact our registrar for more information or to attend one of our meetings during the months of October through June.
