Projects have included yearly scholarships to local graduating high school students, DAR Good Citizen contest, provision of goods to active-duty soldiers as well as patients in the Waco Veterans Hospital, nomination and awarding of the Americanism Medal, organizing the high school assembly for Constitution Day, successful designation of several historic cemeteries, participating in a fund-raiser event to benefit a local museum while wearing Colonial costumes, and being awarded a Registered Texas Historic Designation for the Carver Mansion in Whitney, Texas.
About the DAR 

The DAR, founded in 1890 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America's future through better education for children.

Fort Graham Chapter enthusiastically promotes the DAR mission. The chapter meets on the first or second Saturday of the month, October through May, unless otherwise determined.

Our Mission

For more than a century, the members of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution have dedicated themselves to historic preservation, promotion of education, and encouragement of patriotic endeavor. These goals are as relevant in today's society as they were when the organization was founded in 1890.

Most of DAR's volunteer work is accomplished under a committee system comprised of a national chairman appointed by the President General and locally appointed state and chapter chairmen. The national chairmen direct and supervise the activities of their committees with the assistance of the national vice chairmen. The committees are grouped based on the above-mentioned goals and objectives. 

Historic Preservation

DAR has always recognized the need to preserve our cultural heritage.  This goal is achieved both nationally and locally.  Click here to see some of the national projects DAR has supported.  On a local level, Fort Graham Chapter works to preserve our local heritage for future generations.

Patriotism

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded during a time that was marked by a revival in patriotism and intense interest in the beginnings of the United States of America. Women felt the desire to express their patriotic feelings and wished to have their own organization to perpetuate the memory of ancestors who fought to make this country free and independent. As a result, the Daughters of the American Revolution has carried the torch of patriotism ever since.
