Learn about the Daughters of American Revolution and how to apply at special program

What are the Daughters of the American Revolution, and what is the process to become a member?

Find out during a special program on Sunday, June 23, at the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums.

The program is at 1 p.m in the museum/library building. The Hayes Presidential Library then will be open from 2 to 3 p.m. to those attending the program so that they can do research. Admission to the program and the library is free.

The Daughters of the American Revolution is a national social service organization that promotes history, education and patriotism. Members have a Revolutionary War patriot in their family tree.

Patriots do not have to be soldiers. They can be men and women who provided assistance to the war effort.

During this program, Heather Reichert, regent of the DAR’s Col. George Croghan Chapter, and Kim Knepper, registrar of the DAR’s Col. George Croghan Chapter, will share information about the local chapter, what the organization does and what is involved in the application process to join.

Hayes Library staff will focus on library resources that might assist in completing the application forms. Emphasis will be placed on materials related to the original 13 colonies.  

This program will last about an hour and will be followed by a question-and-answer session.

RSVPS are requested and should be made by Friday, June 21. RSVP to John Ransom or Sharon Barnett at 419-332-2081, [email protected] or [email protected].
