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.
Each member of the DAR is a lineal descendant of a patriot who gave aid or served as a soldier
in the Revolutionary War. The National Society DAR has
facts about DAR and
information about joining DAR. Further information about DAR is available at:
National Society DAR and Missouri State Society DAR

Chapter meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month, September
through May at 7:00 p.m. Light refreshments are served. In June the meeting includes a salad supper
beginning at 6:00 p.m. Throughout the year, programs reflecting the DAR ideals of patriotism, education
and historical preservation as well as women's issues and conservation are given. Among the interesting
programs drawn from the expertise found in the Greater Kansas City area are "Tussie Mussies: the Language
of Flowers"; "Frontier Trails Museum"; "Doll Collecting"; "How Weather Affected the
Founding of Our Country"; "Hospice 101"; and "Harry Truman" . Please
