DAR Donates to Preserve Webster Parish History

The Dorcheat-Bistineau Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution made a memorial donation to the Dorcheat Historical Association in October. The group is scheduled to have two grave marker dedication ceremonies on October 22, 2011 for Mrs. Jo Kennon Williams and Mrs. Judy Kathryn Greer.  Both of these women were longtime active DAR members and officers.  The group will conduct a meeting and reception at the museum following this dedication.  The donation was presented to the museum by DAR members Pat Peevy and Janice Mourad.

The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is a lineage-based membership organization for women who are descended from a person involved in United States' independence. DAR has chapters in all fifty of the U.S. states as well as in the District of Columbia. There are also DAR chapters all over the world.  The DAR motto is "God, Home, and Country." Some state chapters of DAR date from as early as October 11, 1890, and the National Society of DAR was incorporated by Congressional charter in 1896.
