The Captain Nathaniel Mills Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution continues to increase its membership. The chapter inducted three new members at their November meeting.
Sharon Katz, the chapter’s registrar, announced before the induction that the chapter had 104 current members, two associate members, 21 perspective members, with four pending at national headquarters and one verified since October. There were also seven supplemental applications pending at the national office.
The members inducted were Jannette Noack, Mindi Anderson, and Hanna De Armond.
The chapter has been steadily growing for the last few years. In January 2011 there were 71 members. That grew to 77 one year later and then increased again to 81 in January of this year. Since then there has been rapid growth with the count at 104 at the November meeting.
The DAR, founded in 1890 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America's future through better education for children.
Eligibility for membership is open to any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution.
