Local 'Daughters of the American Revolution' Celebrate 125 Years
Next Wednesday will mark the 125th Anniversary of the Butte-Silver Bow Chapter of DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution), an organization dedicated to promoting history education and patriotism in the community. DAR began in Washington, D.C., in 1890, with the Butte-Silver Bow Chapter hosting its first inaugural meeting on December 21, 1897. Their efforts were tireless and not unnoticed as they worked to improve traditions within the surrounding area. Over the years, they have been instrumental in partaking in Flag Day and Independence Day festivities. They have also helped many organizations, such as the Girl and Boy Scouts of America, The Salvation Army, and our local veterans. The local Daughters of the American Revolution have also helped support high school students with the DAR Good Citizen program and college-bound applicants with a University of Montana-Western DAR Scholarship.
