Welcome to the Old Glory Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. We are so glad that you want to learn more about our chapter and DAR!
We have been active in the Franklin community since 1897, a remarkable 115 years. We support the mission of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, patriotism, education, and historic preservation, through our informative and interesting programs and projects. Our programs have included learning about space travel from an astronaut who is also a DAR member, learning about “The Nurses’ Apron Project,” learning about the needs of and providing help for Homeless Women Veterans, learning about the Battle of Franklin Trust, and hearing from a Navy Chief about his experience of 9/11.
Other activities have included: recognizing and honoring our new members with a special tea; supporting the programs and projects of our CAR Society, Matthew Fontaine Maury; having a Christmas party for the DAR Library; presenting framed prints of George Washington to Williamson County schools; sponsoring a genealogy workshop; giving 1300 American flags from our DAR/CAR float in the Franklin Christmas parade; delivering Thank-You cards and personal items to our local Veteran’s Hospital; welcoming new citizens at Naturalization Ceremonies; presenting 9/11 commemorative flags to the Franklin Police and Fire Departments; and recognizing Good Citizens and presenting bronze ROTC medals in our local high schools.
We have sponsored the Cumberland District History Essay winner, the Tennessee State Society Scholarship winner, and received the Tennessee State Society Historic Preservation Project first place award. We enjoy the fellowship of DAR daughters at State Conferences; the Continental Congress at DAR Headquarters in Washington, DC; the Flag Day celebrations at the gravesite of Colonel William Driver; Workshops; the Old Glory annual Christmas gatherings; and the annual Williamson County Presidents’ Day luncheons.
Our members enthusiastically share our love and enjoyment of DAR with each other and our community! We welcome prospective members at our meetings, which are the second Thursday of each month at 1:30 PM at the Williamson County Public Library, unless otherwise announced. For more information about membership, please contact me at email@example.com. ~Susan W. Walker, Regent
