Wyoming State Society
moving forward building teams training new leaders keeping traditions
T he DAR, founded in 1890 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women’s service organization dedicated to historic preservation, education, and patriotism. Any woman 18 years or older-regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution, is eligible for membership.
O ur state society was organized in 1915, and currently has 10 chapters that are located across the 97,818 square miles of Wyoming that we call home. Our members support DAR’s national committees, and have won national awards for American Heritage, Conservation, Constitution Week, and Women’s Issues. Each chapter is a proud partner of the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War Commemoration, and supports America’s service members and their families.
DAR promotes education and literacy by offering scholarships and through educational outreach. Wyoming’s members touch the lives of many throughout our communities by volunteering their time and talents in various efforts.
