Upcoming Events

Chapter programs are diverse and presented to educate, enlighten, and sometimes entertain the members. Youth and adult education, women’s issues, national defense, patriotic education, and American history are among many categories the programs may highlight. Guest speakers range from local residents, with specialized topics, to state and national DAR officers and chairmen.

Chapter meetings offer a great way to showcase talent.

Unless otherwise noted in the chapter calendar, meetings are held the second Thursday of each month, October through May. Our meetings are held in the Jacksonville area. Meetings begin promptly at 10:30 a.m. and lunch is served at noon.
