Welcome to the Lansing Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR). Today’s DAR is a diverse service organization celebrating the unique skills, talents, and personalities of each of its members. We are of all ages, faiths, cultures, and races, with each member a direct descendant of a Patriot of the American Revolutionary War. As a nonprofit, nonpolitical women’s service organization, we put our motto of “God, home, and country” into action, and are committed to promoting patriotism, historic preservation, and education.
Our chapter helps organize Wreaths Across America at a local cemetery. This ceremony honors each branch of the U.S. military, along with the POW/MIA. We also work with local veteran’s associations to provide assistance to men and women who served their country. This year, we marched in the Independence Day Parade in Mason, Michigan — it was hot, but it was fun!
Preserving our national historic sites for future generations is a passion for our members. From statues to historic homes and sites to headstones, we not only promote interest and support in preserving the past, we also get out there and get our hands dirty! Gravesite cleaning is a regular item on our schedule.
Members of our chapter contribute to schools and student programs in a variety of ways. Constitution Week sees our members delivering educational material such as Constitution pamphlets and other items. We work closely with Children of the American Revolution (C.A.R.) and DAR Good Citizens.
Do you have a Revolutionary War Patriot in your family tree? Someone who fought for our freedom, served in a civil capacity, or supported and aided the patriotic cause in other ways? We’d love to help you find out!
