from the beautiful Blue Water Area of the Great Lakes State!
Ottawa Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American
Revolution serves the Blue Water Area. Our
60+ diverse and dynamic members come from Michigan's
"thumb" – including: as far north as Harbor
Beach in Huron
County, all of Sanilac and St. Clair
Counties, and northern Macomb
County. We are a passionate and warm group, who
gather at least once a month to celebrate our special Revolutionary War
heritage; to care for each other and especially to nurture and strengthen this
great country of ours. Typical projects improve and educate our local
communities, protect and preserve our national heritage, and support our
active-duty and retired military veterans.
Ottawa Chapter of the DAR has a cooperative relationship with the Blue Water
Area Sons of the American Revolution and will soon be sponsoring the new local
chapter of the Children of the American Revolution. We are proud of our ancestry and of this
great country that our families have helped to shape. And we look forward to
continuing the legacy of "Historic Preservation, Education, and Patriotism,"
that over 930,000 women worldwide have been a part of since the NSDAR was
founded 125 years ago.
you know that you have a Revolutionary War soldier in your family (or think that
you might have one), join us! We have genealogists that will help you research
your lineage and prepare your application.
And in the meantime, while you are working on your application to become
an official "Daughter," you are welcome to attend our meetings and
help with our projects and enjoy our camaraderie as a guest.
