Blue Spruce Chapter, NSDAR • Founded in 1952
The Blue Spruce Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR), welcomes you to learn more about our chapter and the National Society . We invite you to contact us should you be looking to join a DAR chapter in the Lakewood area. For more information about DAR, please visit the NSDAR website. If you are looking for information about the Colorado State Society DAR (CSSDAR), please visit the CSSDAR website.
DAR members share a common bond; a lineal descent from Patriots of the American Revolution. If you have a Patriot in your family tree or believe your ancestry includes individuals who participated in the Revolutionary War, we encourage you to consider joining the DAR. The Membership link above will take you to the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution website membership page for more information.
The Mission of the Daughters of the American Revolution
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890 as a lineage society to recognize women descended from Revolutionary War Patriots. But NSDAR is far more than a genealogical society. Headquartered in Washington D.C., we serve as a national non-profit, non-political volunteer women’s service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, historic preservation, and better education for children through more than 3,000 chapters located nationally and internationally.
About the Blue Spruce Chapter, NSDAR
Chartered on June 10, 1952, Blue Spruce Chapter, NSDAR, is one of 47 chapters in the Colorado State Society Daughters of the American Revolution. Currently, there are more than 3,680 members in Colorado. Most of our approximately 90 chapter members reside in the Lakewood area, although we draw members from the Golden, Arvada, Morrison, Wheat Ridge, and Littleton communities. We also have several out-of-state and associate members.
Camaraderie, friendship, and fun have always been ingredients of the activities and involvement of the Blue Spruce Chapter, NSDAR. Our members endeavor to make a difference in our community through activities and projects designed to promote the three pillars of service established as objectives of the DAR: historic preservation, education, and patriotism. Our signature project is providing Welcome Home First Night Boxes for homeless veterans moving into an apartment with the help of the Veterans Administration (VA) and Housing and Urban Development (HUD). For a closer look at the kinds of activities our chapter has participated in, check out our Activities page.
Blue Spruce Chapter, NSDAR, holds monthly meetings from September through May. Guests are welcome.
We would be happy to meet and talk with you about DAR and how you might find a perfect fit with Lakewood’s Blue Spruce Chapter, NSDAR. Please contact us for more information. We look forward to hearing from you.
