Alexander Hodge Chapter NSDAR

Welcome

Regent Devoni WardlowThe Alexander Hodge Chapter was founded in 2010. Since then our ladies have been actively involved inhistorical preservation, promotion of education, and the encouragement of patriotic endeavors.

 

The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is one of the world’s largest and most active non-profit, non-political volunteer women’s service organizations. We are a thriving group dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America’s future through better education for children. Daughters are actively engaged in service activities within our community as well as at state and national levels.

 

Our chapter is located in Sugar Land, Texas, in historic Fort Bend County, home of the “Old 300” and “Austin’s Colony.” We are proudly named after the only Revolutionary War patriot to have settled and be buried in Fort Bend County, Texas. Chapter members come from Richmond, Rosenberg, Katy, Missouri City, Houston, Fresno, Alvin, and Sugar Land.

Meetings

We meet on the third Tuesday evening of the month in the Sugar Land area September through May. In addition to monthly programs, the Alexander Hodge Chapter offers genealogy workshops, open to anyone interested in tracing their family lineage. By promoting historic preservation, education, and patriotism, our meetings reflect the work of the National Society. Our chapter enjoys sharing the benefits of DAR membership, recognizing that we have a responsibility to ensure that the freedoms won by our ancestors are appreciated by Americans of today and tomorrow.

 

We welcome your interest in learning more about our chapter and our society as we “Celebrate 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, or ancestors who contributed to the independence cause via donations of goods or support, is eligible for membership.
