I’m so excited to share that our DAR National Headquarters Facebook page has recently gone above 50,000 “Likes”! Members as well as non-members are part of that 50,000 and the more people who “Like” the page means the more people we can engage with and share stories about the DAR. Thank you to all of you who have “Liked” our page and shared its content with your friends!

The DAR Headquarters Facebook page, which can be found at www.facebook.com/TodaysDAR, is the official Facebook page of the National Society. Every week there are posts that range from DAR being in the news to stories about member efforts to information about DAR Headquarters resources and events and much more!

In just the past couple of weeks, the DAR Facebook page has kept you up to date on the “Who Do You Think You Are?” episode filmed at the DAR Library, Jeopardy! filming at Constitution Hall, as well as Boston Globe and Associated Press news articles featuring the DAR.

The DAR Facebook page also reminded you to commemorate Vietnam Veterans Day and announced the partnership with the Museum of the American Revolution. It also updates you on upcoming DAR Library and DAR Museum events and shares info from the latest American Spirit (or special magazine sale!).

Regular features on the DAR Facebook page include Throwback Thursdays (#TBT) sharing interesting history about the DAR and our collections, DAR Special Project Grants that have recently been awarded and volunteer projects that members are performing through the Celebrate America! initiative.

If you have not already, I encourage you all to “Like” the DAR Headquarters Facebook page as well as “Follow” so that the DAR posts will show up in your personal news feed. It’s a great way to stay on top of the latest DAR news as well as share the news with your friends.

When you see a post you like on the DAR Facebook page, remember to “Like” it and feel free to write a comment to engage with the post and others. If someone has posed a question that you can help answer, please feel free to engage with them – especially when people share interest in joining our organization!

What is even more beneficial to the DAR is when you see a post that you think is interesting, please “Share” it with your friends, which allows even more people to learn about the work of the DAR. By people “Sharing” the posts from the DAR Headquarters Facebook page, it opens the door to an even wider audience and more eyes seeing the DAR posts. The more “Shares” of DAR posts means more people “Like” our page, more people know about the resources that DAR offers, and more people become interested in DAR membership.

Facebook is a community and we look to all of you to help invite more people into our DAR Facebook community!
