“The Daughters of the American Revolution is a lineage society that promotes patriotism, historic preservation, and education; our service projects fall under one of these three categories and are always incredibly fulfilling,” Michelle said. “There are so many opportunities in each chapter to find a project that is near and dear to your heart and have the support to get it off the ground. I think our chapter will make the Fourth of July Parade one of our projects to start, and there will be many more.”
The new Lookout Mountain chapter is in search of any women who are lapsed members or members at large to help organize the new chapter. “We are also working on the lineage papers of 15 or 16 ladies at present who are interested in becoming new members, but in order to get the chapter officially started, we need six women who already have had membership. It is very exciting to be one of those first six, as you will be recognized as an Organizing Member of a chapter!” Michelle said.
Several women attended a “paper party” on the mountain and traced their lineage back to the American Revolution. If you are interested in helping organize the new chapter or becoming a member, please contact Michelle at firstname.lastname@example.org. “I think we will have a really good time in this chapter, and create a meaningful impact on this community!” she said.
