Meetings & Programs 2020-2021

North Shore Chapter NSDAR meetings offer engaging programs that serve DAR founding principles of historic preservation, education, and patriotism. Chapter meetings are monthly, September through June, and as directed by the board.

Please contact us if you would like to attend a meeting.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Our priority in times of public health risk is the health and safety of our Daughters, our guests, and our communities. We look forward to resuming our in-person gatherings very soon. In the meantime, while Daughters remain socially distanced, we do remain connected as we go virtual. Hello, Zoom!
