"We Are Today's DAR!"
The primary objectives of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution are to support education, promote patriotism, and historic preservation within our communities.
The Adam Yager Chapter NSDAR has been supporting these objectives since it was organized in 1994.
A twentiety anniversary celebration was held on September 13, in honor of the chapter's charter.
Adam Yager Daughters are always looking for new opportunities to preserve pieces of our American history, and recognize the efforts of those individuals within the community who are making a difference.
Our chapter supports veterans through monetary contributions, donations to the VA Hospital, and many local, state, and national projects, including the Kansas City Honor Flight Network.
We work directly with area schools to encourage an interest in American History and promote good citizenship by sponsoring DAR Good Citizens, and American History essay and scholarship contests, offered to students in grades 5-12.
For more information on DAR scholarships, visit the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution web page featuring scholarship information.
The Adam Yager Chapter NSDAR was organized on September 11, 1994, at Lake Lotawana, Missouri, and was chartered with fifteen members on October 12, 1994, by the National Board of Management. Jennie O'Connor Magan, a fifth great-granddaughter of Adam Yager, was the organizing regent of the chapter.
Our members have been actively involved at chapter, district, state, and national levels with contributions, chairmanships, and officers, and received many awards for achievements. The chapter is pleased to have twenty-two members, including one Junior and six additional associate members. Three chapter members have associate memberships in overseas chapters. --History contributed by Jennie O'Connor Magan
