New Bedford Chapter DAR

New Bedford, Massachusetts

                  Our Purpose is Threefold

EDUCATIONAL  ...to promote, as an object of primary importance, institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge.

PATRIOTIC   ...to cherish, maintain and extend the institution of American freedom; to foster true patriotism and love of country.

 HISTORICAL   ...to perpetuate the memory and spirit of men and women who achieved American independence.

                                  Education

Each year we recognize DAR Good Citizens from local high schools. History awards are presented to three junior high schools in New Bedford each year. We make contributions to the six DAR sponsored schools and two DAR sponsored Indian schools.

                                   Patriotism

All our meetings include patriotic activities. Each year we present ROTC medals at Wareham High School and New Bedford High School. Patriotic activities within the community include participation in parades, support for our servicemen, and recognition of our veterans.
