The Zachariah Davies Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, was organized on October 3, 1945 by Ellen Davies Rodgers as organizing Regent. While our charter is Brunswick, Tennessee, we serve Northeast Memphis, Shelby County including Arlington, Cordova, Lakeland and surrounding areas.
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is a non-profit volunteer women's organization founded over 100 years ago on the principles of service in education, patriotism, and historic preservation.
The DAR gives prospective members an opportunity for service in many areas. It is a way to join with other members in trying to make America a better place in which to live. It offers an opportunity to work with the youth of this great country through the educational programs offered by the NSDAR. It offers encouragement to become active in the community, to assist in historic preservation, to help preserve important documents and records of the past. It offers an opportunity to meet new people with similar interests, develop friendships and to join with others who cherish the priceless heritage enjoyed by all while promoting the ideals of patriotism and love of country. In addition, it offers an incentive to become involved in conservation of our natural resources and to make a difference by doing so. For more information, please contact our Membership Chairman.
