​​MEETING INFORMATION

The Shelby Chapter, NSDAR, meets each month unless otherwise noted (September through June). We have lunch, followed by a program featuring a topic on history, education, or patriotism. The regular business meeting is held after the guest speaker. If you are interested in attending, please contact us.

​​WHAT IS THE DAR?

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR), is a nonprofit, nonpolitical volunteer women’s service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America’s future through better education. The NSDAR consists of over 185,000 members in 3,000 chapters across the world! 

​​WHO ARE OUR MEMBERS?

NSDAR members come from a variety of backgrounds and interests, but all share a common bond of having an ancestor who helped contribute to securing the independence of the United States of America.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

Any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a Patriot of the American Revolutionary War is eligible to join.
