The DAR is a volunteer service organization based on lineage to someone who fought or gave aid to the American Revolution. We preserve historic buildings and artifacts; provide contests, awards and scholarships; support schools and develop good citizens while celebrating the exceptional events in our American history. Any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution is eligible for membership.
Organized in 1927, the Edward Rutledge Chapter is one of the oldest in the state of Florida. Our membership spans much of North Central Florida, with active Daughters residing in Alachua, Baker, Columbia, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Suwannee, Taylor, and Union counties. Regular meetings are held the second Thursday of each month, October through May at 10:30 am. We enjoy interesting programs given by a variety of guest speakers related to historic preservation, education, and patriotism. We’d love to have you join us next time – contact us for details!
