Drawing from our theme verse, Eccl. 3:1 “For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven,” the Tennessee Society Daughters of the American Revolution has embarked upon a Season of Service to God, Home, and Country.
Until June 2022, our state society will be focusing on various service projects in our state and communities to make a positive impact upon our fellow Tennesseans. To achieve this goal of service, we have added several new projects for our chapters, and truly between the work of our committees and these new service projects, there is something for everyone.
Blessing Bags and Operation Personal Care are just two of these new state projects. Blessing Bags collects new and gently used luggage and bags for children statewide to use for their belongings when removed from homes for foster care.Operation Personal Care collects and distributes female personal care items to schools and shelters. These projects, along with our literacy efforts, historic sites support, and on-going work for our military and veterans, areexamples of our extensive efforts toward historic preservation, education, and patriotism, which are aims of our State and National Societies.
I encourage you to see what your local chapters are doing, and join us as we work to serve God, Home, and Country.
Cecile Wimberley, State Regent
What We Do
One of the three objectives of the DAR is historic preservation. From the very beginning of the Tennessee Society, historic preservation was emphasized.
The education of young people is one of the objectives of the DAR. The National Society offers a variety of educational programs, contests, and awards.
Since 1892, the TSDAR has been dedicated to the promotion of patriotism.
