The DAR gives members an opportunity for service in many areas. It is a way to join with others in trying to make America a better place to live. DAR offers an opportunity to meet people with similar interests, develop friendships, and to join others who cherish the priceless heritage enjoyed by all while promoting the ideals of patriotism and love of country.
Our chapter is one of 105 Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) chapters in the state of Illinois. We serve Bureau, Stark, and Putnam Counties.
This website provides information about our chapter’s history and our patriot ancestors, as well as links to information about DAR membership requirements. Links are also provided to both our National Society and State Organization websites.
