Welcome to our website
political volunteer women’s service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America’s future through better education for children.
VSSDAR was founded in 1892, just two years after the National Society. Today we have 15 chapters all across the state, from Brattleboro to the Northeast Kingdom. We hope you’ll spend some time here getting to know us and learning more about our vibrant organization.
A letter from our State Regent:
Our VSSDAR motto: “Vermont Daughters…. Soaring through Service in DAR”
Welcome from Vermont State Society, DAR!
A visit to Vermont demonstrates our service to our state and our local communities as we work to preserve our rich heritage, support education and serve and honor our veterans. Our most prominent effort in the field of historic preservation is showcased in our 1796 John Strong Mansion Museum on the shores of Lake Champlain in Addison, Vermont. We promote education through the sponsorship of American History Essay Contests and Good Citizen Contests in our schools. Patriotism is shown by our support of deployed troops, participation in Naturalization Ceremonies, celebrations of Constitution Week and being a Partner of the Vietnam War 50th Anniversary Commemoration.
