O’Fallon Chapter NSDAR

In honor of our founding mothers, our chapter has retained the O’Fallon name even though we are now located in Mid-Saint Louis County. We have a long and distinguished history of serving the Saint Louis community. Our chapter was founded in 1910, so we are celebrating a century of service this year.

Brief History

As the sweet fragrance of lilacs and apple blossoms filled the air, fourteen ladies assembled on April 9, 1910, at Woodlawn in O’Fallon, Missouri, the home of Mrs. John Williams. This was the first meeting of our chapter.

A great deal of patriotic work was done by our chapter during the time of World War I. After the war, the chapter “adopted” a French orphan, Gabriel Osier. Patriotic work and support of our troops has continued through World War II and to the present time.

Members of the chapter are actively involved in local, state and national DAR programs. We are active in many other community services as well, such as USO. Our membership has grown to 70 and we always welcome new members.
