Bunco Night a great success for the mission of the organization

‘This book meets several of DAR’s objectives; promoting literacy, American history, conservation and education,” said Kim Cantwell, first regent of the chapter. “We purchased the books from Texas Children of the American Revolution as part of their state project. We hope this book will be shared with students and promote their love of reading, history and conservation.

DAR is the nation’s oldest women’s service organization, founded in 1890. Membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution is open to any woman 18 years of age or older who can prove lineal descent from an ancestor who served the cause of American independence.

Most of DAR’s volunteer work is accomplished through the local efforts of chapters at the grassroots level who focus on DAR’s mission areas by encouraging members to get involved in these initiatives in their local communities and to promote historic preservation, education and patriotism.
