For more than a century, the members of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution have dedicated themselves to historical 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.
Mrs. Hattie Mae Dick was Organizing Chapter
Regent of John Everett Chapter in 1932. The new chapter was
named for her DAR ancestor John Everett. Later, Mrs. Dick
served as Texas State Regent from 1964-67. That experience
led her to the office of Vice President General NSDAR and
then to Reporter General to the Smithsonian Institute. John
Everett Chapter is a county-wide chapter serving columbus,
Weimar and Eagle Lake. Members meet on the first Monday of
each month from October through April at 2pm.
