DAR Women Promote Patriotism, History, Education
Last weekend, Scottsdale-chartered Grand Canyon Chapter Daughter of the American Revolution (DAR) got together for their annual Summer Festival at Windemere Hotel, located right outside of Paradise Valley. The event, a huge success, served to introduce new officers and inform the members of their current state-wide goals.
According to Sonoran News, DAR is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women’s service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, historic preservation and education. The group is open to any woman 18 years or older, who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution.
The festival highlights included the Arizona Juniors’ sales table and other fun activities. Arizona’s DAR Juniors try to raise money through these events to attend the state Outstanding Juniors at National DAR Continental Congress in Washington D.C. Junior DAR member want to be able to represent the Grand Canyon chapter in a positive way to make a difference in their community.
