Welcome to the Santa Margarita Chapter DAR
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) is a non-profit, non-political, volunteer women’s service organization comprising 3,000 chapters and over 175,000 members. On October 11, 1890, eighteen women officially organized the NSDAR for historic, educational, and patriotic purposes. Since that day, more than 900,000 women have joined, representing chapters in fifty states and many countries around the world.
The California State Regent selects her theme and project that will unite Daughters throughout the state with one common goal. Carol Oakley Jackson, 2014-2016, has elected to focus on providing tangible support for music therapy for Veterans with PTSD, enhancing the garden under oak trees at State Headquarters, and promoting historic preservation, education, and patriotism.
The Santa Margarita Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution was organized in 1929 with the express purpose of honoring our Revolutionary War ancestors... remembering our past and preparing for the future through organized service in our community to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism ~ the objectives of the National Society. Our purpose remains the same today. We, too, support the goals of the state organization...and Linda Ramos, chapter regent, has elected to encourage active membership participation... tying her motto to that for the State Society... providing Daughters with many opportunities to be involved during monthly meetings and through community service.
We are so pleased that you are interested in finding out more about the DAR and particularly our chapter... you have come to the right place!
