The Chevy Chase Chapter NSDAR was founded in 1943 to help support the Walter Reed Medical Center's military and veterans. Today we are over 100 members strong and growing!
What we do: Chevy Chase Chapter is dedicated to DAR's three-part mission of historic preservation, education, and patriotism. Among other things, we:
♦ support veterans and active duty military and their families by providing meals, clothes, toiletries, snacks, and other items they need at Walter Reed and related military installations
♦ award scholarships to students at Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School to promote good citizenship
♦ welcome new U.S. citizens at naturalization ceremonies
♦ demonstrate good environmental stewardship by planting pollinator gardens
♦ support preservation of historic buildings and sites in our area such as Revolutionary War-era cemeteries
♦ hear fascinating and inspiring speakers to learn more about our country's history and how we can help America move forward in the 21st century!

Our meetings: Our chapter holds monthly meetings from September through May, generally on the second Saturday of the month. In addition, we plan a variety of service projects throughout the year, as well as informal get-togethers to welcome new members and enjoy fellowship with all members.
We invite you to join us as a guest at our meetings and learn more about Today’s DAR and how we Celebrate America! Do you want to know more about DAR? Click on the NSDAR tab to learn about the national organization, and MSSDAR to learn about the Maryland state organization.
