We are so glad you found the Captain William Penny Chapter home in cyberspace. The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is a women's service organization dedicated to promoting historic preservation, education, patriotism, and honoring the patriots of the Revolutionary War. 

What We Do

The Captain William Penny Chapter, NSDAR, was organized September 5, 1996, and the charter from the National Society was granted October 12, 1996. Our chapter assists with naturalization ceremonies, participates in the American History Essay Contest, the History Medal Program, and the DAR Good Citizens Awards program. We also support our DAR schools, the Illinois Veterans' Home at Quincy, the WaBose Society Children of the American Revolution, and national, state, and district project funding. Local projects include the Titan Fuel Project, which sends food home with local children who are in need, and Friends of the Chatham Area District Library.

The Captain William Penny Chapter created and maintains a memorial garden to honor our Revolutionary War patriots and the original thirteen colonies.  The garden is located just north of the back entrance of the Chatham Community Park on Park Avenue, and is for everyone to enjoy!  Please take time to look on  our gallery of pictures to see the completed project.  For further information about attending a chapter meeting, contact our registrar.
