Newly-elected officers of the Judge David Campbell Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution met to plan activities for the coming year.  Officers reviewed the many volunteer activities and service awards programs that will take place in the greater Chattanooga area.  

Many future events and programs are founded on the DAR’s commitment to education, historic preservation, and patriotism.  Members were able to donate $1,080 in gift cards to the DAR sponsored Crossnore School.  This chapter works with 31 local schools to solicit entries for several state and national awards programs such as the American History Essay contest, Outstanding American History Student, and DAR Good Citizen Award.

The Judge David Campbell Chapter was organized in May 1915 and is one of five local Chattanooga DAR chapters.  Any woman interested in finding out more about how to become involved in our local DAR organizations can email judgedavidcampbell@tndar.org or visit www.tndar.org/~davidcampbell/.
