For 100 plus years, the Andrew Carruthers Chapter
has been a welcoming and fun group started for juniors that now
incorporates everyone. We are a relaxed and energetic chapter and hope you will come join in our fun and camaraderie!|
I feel honored and privileged to be taking the reins of this historic chapter and enjoy working with such an outstanding group of women. All continue to work for the benefit not only of our chapter, but also for the National Society with integrity, honesty, loyalty, and respect for all. We have been blessed with tremendous leadership and I hope to continue this tradition in all the endeavors that this chapter excels at within the DAR framework of God, Home, and Country.
In DAR Friendship,
