Welcome to the Del Norte Chapter DAR
The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is a non-profit, non-political volunteer service organization made up of approximately 175,000 members with 3,000 chapters. These chapters are located in all 50 states and in many countries around the world. On October 11, 1890, eighteen women met to officially organize the NSDAR for historic, educational, and patriotic purposes. Since that day, over 800,000 members have been admitted into membership.
The Del Norte Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, was organized on April 25, 2009, with sixteen members. This chapter was named to honor the county where it resides. Although the county and chapter's name is Del Norte, whose meaning in Spanish is, "The North," it was presented into the California State Legislature as Del Norte with a silent "e." This makes the pronunciation of the name Del Norte as unique as the chapter that honors it.
