The Ozark Spring Chapter NSDAR was organized October 14, 1977,
with 13 organizing members:
Mrs. Vivian Brooks, Mrs. Bonnie Coffman, Mrs. Edith Dold, Mrs.
Virginia Hard, Mrs. Rubye Kiesler, Mrs. Doris Landis, Mrs. Jeanette
Pease, Miss Cheryl Reavis, Mrs. Linda Shortridge, Mrs. Mary Ellen
Wheeler, and Mrs. Christine White.
The chapter took its name from an underground spring located one
block east of Court Square in West Plains. The spring is a historically
significant landmark in Howell county and was responsible for the
county seat being located at West Plains. And like its namesake,
it is hoped that Ozark Spring Chapter will make a significant contribution
in our community through our commitment to the historical, educational,
and patriotic objectives of our National Society.
Whether we are celebrating patriotic events such as Constitution
Week, participating in efforts to recognize veterans, helping preserve
the history of our community or making a contribution that will
help children receive an excellent education, Ozark Spring Chapter
activities reflect our members' commitment to support our Society's
objectives at a national, state and local level.
Ozark Spring Chapter meetings are held the first Saturday of each
month in West Plains, Missouri. We have a variety of interesting
and educational programs given with topics such as historical facts,
conservation, and national defense. For more information on chapter
activities or if you would like to attend one of our meetings,
