To perpetuate the memory and spirit of the men and women who achieved American Independence; to promote the development of an enlightened public opinion; and to foster patriotic citizenship--these are the objects of our society, Daughters of the American Revolution.

Each member of the DAR is a lineal descendant of a patriot who gave aid or served as a soldier in the Revolutionary War.  To learn about DAR and information on how you can become a member , please visit our National Society DAR and Missouri State Society DAR web pages.

Grandview, Missouri, is located in the Greater Kansas City area of Jackson County. Since it was chartered in 1973 by the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, the Little Blue River Chapter's goal has been to provide community service in light of our American heritage.

Our chapter meetings are held September through June.  A variety of programs have included trips to local historical locations; local and state legislative guest speakers on local and national issues; historical speakers on historical places, events and persons, one of which was Val Howard, the First Lady's Lady, Bess Truman; and speakers re-enacting Civil War soldiers and ladies of the period. Other programs included topics on Indian issues, women's health issues, veterans, and conservation, providing very interesting and entertaining information. Among many programs of interest have been "Newsgathering Versus Privacy Concerns (Patriot Act)" by Steve Winn, Deputy Opinion Editor, Kansas City Star; "My Kaw Ancestors" by Erin Pouppirt, Spokesperson for The Kaw Nation; and "Medical Aspects of the Lewis and Clark Expedition" by Ros Dickison, Chemistry Professor and Member of the Corps of Discovery.

Contact us if you are interested in joining DAR and would like to attend one of our meetings. Visitors are welcome. We will be glad to guide you in researching your patriot.
