Our Chapter Culture

Our members are a diverse group who are all direct descendants of American Revolutionary War Patriots and are a group of women of all ages, with varied backgrounds, talents, and professional experiences in many fields, each of whom is respected and valued as a member.

The Linares Chapter, NSDAR, is a very active chapter in the San Diego area.  We are a part of District XIV, which encompasses eleven different chapters in San Diego and Imperial counties.  While we do have a monthly luncheon meeting with a program that supports our National Society's mission, our chapter's emphasis is on service to our community.  We feel what distinguishes our chapter is that we truly enjoy one another's company, respect one another, and have loads of fun, all while promoting our National Society's objectives.  We have a variety of committees that you can be involved in.  Committees such as Lineage Research, Community Classroom, DAR Service for Veterans, American History, and Conservation means there is something for everyone, and you can volunteer in an area that matches your interests.
