REGENT'S MESSAGE
Welcome to the Tampa Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
On October 11, 2015 the NSDAR will
celebrate its 125th year of service to America. A founding member,
Eugenia Washington, said, “We
want a society founded on service.” The Society’s mission is promoting
patriotism, preserving American
history and securing America’s future through better education. Each
year millions of volunteer hours are
donated by your DAR sisters in their local communities to these
goals. Your membership in the
society honors and preserves the legacy of our ancestors while we
continue a legacy of service to our
country. On October 16, 1923 the National Board confirmed, Mrs.
William Lister Moore, the organizing
regent of the second NSDAR chapter in Tampa. The first chapter
meeting occurred on May 14, 1925 with
36 members and the chapter was named Tampa. Since that time
the Tampa chapter has grown to 108
intelligent, vibrant, diverse members. By combining our strengths
and talents we have synergy and are able to accomplish the goals of the NSDAR and our chapter that
we could not accomplish as individuals. We are counting on you, our members, to lend your strengths to
ours so the Tampa Chapter can truly have an impact on our community. As the NSDAR celebrates 125
years and our Chapter celebrates 92 years, I invite YOU to make this the year to take the steps to join
with your chapter sisters, come to the meetings; get involved in the areas that are important or
interesting to you. But more importantly, have fun; make friendships that will last a lifetime while
continuing your family’s legacy of service. I look forward to seeing you at the meetings and to working
with you in our combined efforts to make a difference!
