We welcome new members to our chapter.
Denver Chapter DAR meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month to have lunch and listen to various programs put on by individuals of the community and our members.
We have many women from all walks of life whose ancestors participated in some way, in the Revolutionary War. The DAR has chapters all over the world and our Denver Chapter is growing. Our historian can meet with prospective members a the Denver Main Library to help find and put together their documents.
