Getting ready to celebrate our 100th year!

The San Fernando Valley Chapter, NSDAR, Daughters of the American Revolution, was organized on April 19, 1917, and became the forty-third chapter in California on October 25, 1918.

Our chapter supports veterans at the Sepulveda VA Hospital in North Hills, California (CA) in numerous ways. Including ukulele lessons and performances, a coffee cart, Friday Night Bingo, donations of bus tokens and drives for items most needed for our service men and women. This past year we celebrated Vietnam Veterans by honoring their service with a ceremony and commemorative pin at the American Legion Post in La Crescenta.

Each year the chapter awards the Catherine Hubbard Dace American History Memorial Award to an outstanding female graduating senior. We also work with local schools on the American History Essay Contest for students in the San Fernando Valley.

In addition to our monthly meetings held September through June, our members and prospectives meet for periodic day trips and dinners. Past activities include a historical nature walk, television show tapings and a day at Disneyland for the Junior Members. Please click here to visit our calendar for further information.  We also coordinate a DAR volunteer genealogist on the 3rd Tuesday of every month to provide research and assistance with the DAR application at the Southern CA Genealogical Society Library located in in Burbank.
