Greetings Daughters!  I am honored to be serving our National Society during the VanBuren Administration as your Treasurer General. 

If you had told me in 1993 when I became a member as a Junior that I would be serving our Society on the Executive Committee, I may have laughed at you.  I joined our wonderful Society in 1991 because I received a phone call from my father -- a retired... Read More

The month of July found the Data Entry and Genealogy staff at National busier than ever processing and reviewing Applications and Supplementals as we work to achieve our Society’s membership goals.  Their efforts paid off in a big way – with a whopping 1,270 Applications, along with 590 Supplementals, verified last month!  Thank you to all of the prospective members, chapter registrars and...

DAR is about family to me—and not in the way one would generally think.  I was the first in my family to become a member.  My paternal grandmother knew she was eligible, but was busy with other activities and three children and chose not to join.  My mother, Virginia Sebastian, knew she had the lineage but never pursued it. Little did I know that on a sunny day in 7th grade algebra... Read More

They say there is something unforgettable about your first love. No wonder I feel so connected to the Iowa Daughters, who warmly welcomed me for my very first official visit to a State DAR Society function as your President General. I will likely never forget their gracious hospitality and many kindnesses – and best of all? They brought that same welcoming attitude to every guest, regardless... Read More

It’s an exciting time to be a member of the DAR, and, as you might suspect, I am thrilled to be your Corresponding Secretary General in the Rise and Shine for America administration under the leadership of President General Denise Doring VanBuren.

It is such an honor to serve on the VanBuren Administration as the Recording Secretary General. I look forward to working with these amazing women as we guide our Society to Rise and Shine for America!

DAR has been such a blessing in my life. After living my whole life in Ohio, my husband’s company and our family relocated to North Carolina, where we didn’t know a soul or have... Read More

“Give and it shall be given to you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together.” – Luke 6:38

When it became obvious that my maternal grandmother was having trouble getting to Governor Thomas Ford Chapter meetings, I decided that it was time to get my papers in order and join the DAR.  The time was right as I had graduated from the University of Illinois, was married to my husband,...
