The San Diego Chapter

 

The San Diego Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, is the oldest and largest chapter in Southern California's District XIV. We report to the State Headquarters in Glendora, California, and to National Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Our members are a diverse group who are all direct descendents of Revolutionary War patriots, and are bound together with pride in our heritage and our love of country. We are a group of ladies of all ages, with varied backgrounds, talents and professional experiences in many fields--each of whom is respected and valued as a member.

Our luncheon meeting at a local country club on the third Friday of each month (September through June) includes chapter business and a guest speaker/program.

Our other activities include promoting:

  • Patriotism
  • Good Citizenship
  • American History Studies in Schools
  • Literacy
  • Historic Preservation
  • Conservation
  • Supporting the Military and USO
  • Native American Projects & Awareness
  • Women's and Children's Issues

We are inspired by the deeds and dreams of our ancestors and value the contribution that each of our members make. There is something for everyone to do! We all share a great heritage. Times have changed and so have we in DAR.  Coming together is beginning, staying together is progress, working together is success!

During the 2017-2019 administration we will be focusing on the celebration of the Centennial of the 1915 Panama-California Exposition and the preservation of history surrounding our original participation in this exciting San Diego event.
