Welcome to the Birmingham Territory Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, a group of patriotic, caring women in the greater Birmingham, Alabama area dedicated to activities that promote our country’s history and heritage.
We are a nonpartisan group of women who have traced their lineage to men and women patriots who served in or provided aid to the Revolutionary War. Chapter members support the three objectives of the National Society DAR: historic preservation, promotion of education and patriotic endeavor.
Birmingham Territory Chapter DAR recognized “breast cancer awareness month” at its October 11 meeting for its October women's issues minute by having individual bags containing items related to breast cancer awareness for each member attending. Coincidentally, October 11 is the anniversary of the founding of NSDAR and its National Service Day. The Chapter stuffed over 65 treat bags for the Ronald McDonald House at Children's Hospital as a service project. Each bag also contained an encouraging note or silly kid-friendly riddle on a neon colored 3 x 5 index card decorated with puffy stickers.
Our program was the Homewood K9 dogs, Vulcan and Shadow, with their handlers, Officers Scruggs and Kidd. Great day all around and we appreciate the officers time and the demonstration of the dogs.
