OLD CHISHOLM TRAIL CHAPTER, NSDAR
Historic Preservation-Patriotism-Education

Old Chisholm Trail Chapter NSDAR was organized April 16, 1977, by Twila Bell Gauntt, Organizing Regent. Chapter members perpetuate the memory of the men and women who achieved independence for America by emphasizing patriotism and respect for The flag of the United States of America, by encouraging responsible citizenship, and by documenting family history through lineage research. Revolutionary Ancestors of chapter members are honored at an annual luncheon. Chapter activities include participation in flag presentation, ROTC awards, Patriotism medals, and DAR Good Citizen awards. Decorating the Millermore Mansion at Old City Park in Dallas is an annual Christmas Project. Other members serve their communities as volunteers in a variety of other areas. Chapter members are very active in TXDAR and NSDAR, holding both office and committee positions. They attend the annual TXDAR Fall Forum, TXDAR State Conference, and NSDAR Continental Congress. Junior members are encouraged to participate as Pages at State Conference and Continental Congress and serve as chapter officers and committee chairmen. The chapter awards two scholarships annually. The Mattie Rae Fouts Scholarship, established in 1980, is given to an outstanding senior student of Duncanville High School. The Memorial Fund Scholarship, established in 1996, is available for children or grandchildren of chapter members. Three Forks of the Trinity Chapter,Society of the Children of the American Revolution, was organized under the sponsorship of this chapter on February 10, 1979, and reactivated January 30, 1995.
