Mary Sibley Chapter
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.

The Mary Sibley Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution was organized on January 31, 1970, and currently has 43 members from the Cass County Missouri area. Over the years our support has been given to DAR approved schools, the President General's Projects, the State Regent's Projects, Veteran's Hospitals, soldiers in Iraq, and Historical Preservation. Additionally, we have supported the Good Citizens Program and Scholarship Contest.
We are honored to use the name of Mary Sibley for our chapter. She and her husband, George Sibley, were early pioneers at Fort Osage on the Missouri River.
Our meetings are held on the third Saturday of each month (September through June.) We are a very congenial group, and welcome anyone interested in visiting a meeting or interested in membership.
