Chapter Meetings

We meet the second Saturday of the month September through June.  Coffee is ready at 9:30 a.m. and our meeting convenes at 10:00 a.m.  If you would like to attend one of our meetings, please contact our chapter regent

Most chapter meetings combine patriotic exercises with organizational business and educational programs.  Many of our members are skilled presenters.  We won a State DAR award for our program series, "Who Do You Think You Are?" in which members shared stories from their genealogical research.  Nothing as fascinating as someone sharing what they love!

We also invite special interest speakers to share their expertise.  We make time for celebrations of all kinds, from Abigail Adams' birthday to a member's 50th anniversary in DAR.  We share information, work on our special projects, and just have fun.  And we try to do a "road trip" every year.
