Welcome to Lady Stirling Chapter, NSDAR

Lady Stirling Chapter is about 20 members strong and rich in history. Our membership covers the northwest end of Lake Washington and we welcome interested and prospective members to join us. Our chapter meets in Lake Forest Park on the second Saturday of the month from September through June.

We are a small and friendly chapter committed to serving our community, in keeping with the principles of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR). Our members represent women who are business owners, professionals, students, and dedicated mothers and grandmothers.

On October 11, 1890, four women founded the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR); an Act of Congress incorporated the NSDAR in 1896, formalizing the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR or NSDAR) as a nationally recognized organization. The NSDAR is a service organization with a mission of promoting patriotism, education, and historic preservation. These timeless, overarching principles keep the DAR strong and vitally relevant in this ever-changing world.

In support of the DAR mission, Lady Stirling Chapter is committed to fostering lifelong friendships, providing opportunities in leadership, honoring our past, and building the future. We believe these values, handed down to us from our Revolutionary War patriot ancestors who built this country, continue to be relevant today.

Our chapter and its members have contributed to these endeavors:

  • Participating in the Washington Memorial wreath laying at the University of Washington
  • Historic Preservation by cleaning and preserving monuments
  • Honoring our veterans by placing U.S. flags on veterans' graves
  • Celebrating U.S. Constitution Week
  • Celebrating U.S. Commemorative Events
  • Supporting DAR Schools
  • Awarding ROTC medals and certificates to student candidates
