California DAR  

The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is a non-profit, non-political volunteer service organization made up of over 175,000 members with 3,000 chapters. These chapters are located in all fifty states and in many countries around the world. On October 11, 1890, eighteen women met to officially organize the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) for historic, educational, and patriotic purposes. Since that day, over 800,000 members have been admitted into membership.

The Point Vicente Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, was organized on December 4, 1985.  Mrs. Elizabeth Truesdail was the chapter's first regent.  The chapter's name was chosen because of its proximity to the beautiful Point Vicente Lighthouse.  Many members are from the Palos Verdes Peninsula, however some members are from other areas as well.  Local residency is not a requirement for membership in the chapter.
