Major Molly Chapter

Hamilton, Missouri


DAR is one of the fastest growing and largest patriotic women's organization in the country, with over 170,000 members world-wide, and over 5,000 in the state of Missouri. Members come from all walks of life, each with a proven lineage to a patriot who served or aided the American cause during the American Revolution, and are bonded with the love of God, Home, and Country - the national motto of the DAR.

Major Molly Daughters enthusiastically support the goals and objectives of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, promoting education, patriotism, and historic preservation.

The chapter recognizes outstanding students and teachers each year through participation in the Missouri State Society DAR's American History and Christopher Columbus essay contests, DAR Good Citizen essay and scholarship awards; Outstanding Teacher of American History contest; and Outstanding Teacher recognition within the Hamilton school district. Local winners of these contests are submitted to the State Society for consideration for state recognition.

Major Molly Daughters have participated in identifying the grave of a Revolutionary War soldier, Real Daughters, and Century Farms in Missouri. They support area veterans through donations to veterans homes, Project Patriot, and help sponsor WWII veterans who are selected to visit their memorial in Washington, D.C. through donations to the Honor Flight Network.

We welcome guests and invite you to consider becoming a part of this extraordinary group of women! Please contact us for membership inquiries and specific meeting information.
