Nestled along the Missouri River on the Lewis and Clark Trail lies Parkville, Missouri, home of White Alloe Chapter, NSDAR. Our chapter name is derived from the first white settler in the area, a French-Canadian trapper named Pierre Alloe. More than a century ago he spent his winters in a cave, or “dugout,” on the bank of the branch emptying into the Missouri River at Parkville. The Kickapoo Indians, living across the Missouri River, called him “White Alloe” and gave the name White Alloe Creek to the small stream where he lived. A monument, donated by White Alloe Chapter, marks this location on the campus of Park University. Across Missouri Highway 9 from this marker is the old Parkville Train Station Museum, which is adjacent to the Parkville Spirit Fountain. The bench on the east side of the fountain was donated by White Alloe Chapter. A second bench sits by the McCoy Meetin' House at Park University. White Alloe Chapter celebrated its 60th Anniversary in 2017.
Chapter meetings are held on the first Saturday of the month. An informal luncheon is served at 12:30 P.M., with the meeting beginning at 1:00 P.M. Each regular meeting (September through May) includes a speaker presentation, patriotic exercises, official messages and reports, and a general business meeting. Inquiries about our chapter, membership requirements, or help with ancestor research may be directed to Regent Valorie Strickler. We welcome and encourage prospective members to visit our chapter.
Local Chapter activities include observation of Constitution Week, support of local and DAR schools, recognition of outstanding youth with Good Citizen awards, commemorative activities for Viet Nam and WWI, and support of both our Veterans (honor flights) and the men and women who currently serve our country (holiday cards). Delegates attend District, State and National conferences annually.
