Chevy Chase Chapter
The Chevy Chase Chapter NSDAR held its organizing meeting with 17 women deciding to form a chapter on January 18, 1943. The National Society confirmed this new chapter on February 3, 1943. At its inception, the chapter began to work in service projects to support military families and troops during World War II. It has continued its strong focus over the years in projects supporting veterans and military families; and is also active in each of the DAR missions of education, patriotism, and historic preservation.
Membership: Chevy Chase Chapter is over 100 members strong and growing. Any woman is eligible for membership in DAR who is no less than eighteen years of age and can prove lineal, bloodline descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence.
