ABOUT OUR CHAPTER
We love Junior Members – a Junior is a DAR member age 18 through 35 years of age (until her 36th birthday). She may page at state conference and Continental Congress until her 41st birthday. She holds full DAR membership, and when qualified, may serve as an officer and chair at the national, state, and chapter levels.
The Treasure Coast Chapter, Children of the American Revolution, is located near Port Saint Lucie. We encourage all girls and boys from birth to age 18 qualified for membership to join C.A.R. The C.A.R. provides them with the opportunity to learn more about their heritage, American history, as well as leadership skills as they grow. At age 18 they can easily transition to DAR or SAR membership.
This past year the Saint Lucie River Chapter presented three DAR Good Citizens awards, one to a student from each of the three local high schools. The three award winners attended one of our meetings, read their winning essays, and received a DAR Good Citizens card and pin, as well as a $1,000 scholarship. The $1,000 scholarship is renewable if the student maintains a 3.5 grade average.
JROTC cadets from two of the local high schools posted the colors at two of the chapter meetings, and we presented each participating cadet with a $40 gift certificate. The chapter presented JROTC medals at the three local high schools, recognizing those outstanding cadets, upon the recommendation of the program director.
In addition, the chapter judged at least six history projects for the county schools grades 6 through 8, presenting certificates and monetary awards in each.
Members attended two community events, talking with people about DAR and distributed information brochures about our organization. At the Seafood Fest, we had a stand and let attendees know more about DAR.
