The Fort Vasquez Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR), was organized on September 28, 1928. Our chapter invites those women whose ancestors were involved with the American Revolutionary War to join the NSDAR organization in promoting patriotism and share in our community service activities.
“We believe that the rich and beautiful land in which we live has been a major factor in shaping the American nation and the lives of its people.
We believe that Americans have created a way of life unsurpassed in excellence by any other nation of modern times. The sturdy foundation on which American life is anchored is our Constitution. Conceived in the wisdom of the Founding Fathers of the Republic and strengthened by succeeding generations, our government has guided the nation to its astounding growth while meeting the changing needs of the times.
We believe that the history of America forms as epic incomparable for its richness and variety.
We believe that the key to America’s future lies in the study of its past. Sharpen your knowledge of our priceless American heritage and better equip yourself to carry out the duties as citizens.”
-Richard C. Brown, Arlan C. Helgeson, and George H. Lobdell, Jr.
“Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence.”
We the Daughters of the American Revolution celebrate our past, continue to preserve its history, encourage patriotism, and promote history education. Be thankful for our liberties and freedoms.
-Colleen Heitman, past Fort Vasquez chapter regent
