Daughters of the American Revolution

Are you a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution?

Nearly every time I’ve seen my aunt over the past 20 years she has asked me when I’m going to join. She’s been a member for a long time and is quite involved. I finally broke down and agreed to join—why not, after all? We’re working on my application and I’m planning to attend a local chapter meeting next month.

I’m curious to hear from other members what they enjoy most about the organization. I have to admit that I’m most interested in the genealogy and historic preservation aspects than I am in other aspects and this has caused my hesitancy to join in the past. Do members tend to have a special interest or are members expected to take part in all aspects and activities?

  1. I’ve thought about joining off and on over the years but I never felt like I had the time to contribute. I have my aunt’s application and would just have to add to it to join. Keep me posted on what it’s like! 🙂
