New DAR Member in Local Chapter

This fall, the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) welcomed Paula Price (2nd from right) into the Gila Valley Chapter as a new member. Those who endorsed her application included (L-R) Bonnie Briscoe, Chapter Regent; Donna Wright, Chapter Historian; and Peggy Moon, Chapter Parliamentarian .

DAR is a women’s service organization dedicated to promoting historic preservation, education, patriotism and honoring the patriots of the Revolutionary War.

DAR members come from a variety of backgrounds and interests, but all share a common bond of having an ancestor who helped contribute to securing the independence of the United States of America. 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 to join.
