Daughters of the American Revolution hosting centennial celebration – Dubois County Free Press


Northwood II

The Dubois County Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, will celebrate its Centennial with an Open House on Sunday, October 16, 2022, from 2:00 to 4:00 p. m. at the Old Town Hall, 309 North Geiger Street, Huntingburg. All current and prospective members, past members and their families, and anyone interested in learning more about the National Society and its work are cordially invited to attend.
The Dubois County DAR was officially chartered on October 17, 1922 under the leadership of organizing regent Mrs. Wilhelmina Rothert, a great-granddaughter of Huntingburg founder Col. Jacob Geiger. A total of 14 founding members initially formed the chapter, joined by seven additional members by the official October 17 charter date. Other members continued to join throughout the first charter year.
For a century, the Dubois County Chapter has promoted the National Society’s threefold mission of education, historic preservation, and patriotism. Landmark achievements include the locating and marking of Revolutionary War soldiers buried in Dubois County; the holding of Society state and national offices, saving the historic Old Town Hall in Huntingburg from demolition; promoting education through annual American History and DAR Good Citizen essay contest receptions; Constitution Week displays in local libraries; recognition of outstanding eighth graders through the DAR Youth Citizenship Award; and DAR school board membership and support.
Founded in 1890, the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is a service organization that promotes education, historic preservation, and patriotism. Any woman aged 18 and over who can verify her lineage back to a Patriot of the Revolutionary War is eligible.
The Dubois County DAR invites the community to celebrate this milestone as the Chapter looks ahead to the next hundred years in which to continue its long tradition of community service. To RSVP, please contact Angela McDonald, Centennial Committee Chairman, ph. 812/630-2885; email [email protected]
