Old Northwest-Aaron Olmstead Chapter NSDAR
Preservation Education Patriotism
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) is a non-profit, non-political, volunteer women’s service organization comprising 3,000 chapters and over 185,000 members.
The Old Northwest Chapter NSDAR was organized in Ravenna, Ohio, on February 22, 1901, and the Aaron Olmstead Chapter NSDAR was organized in Kent, Ohio, on October 8, 1921. These two chapters merged in 2010 to form the Old Northwest-Aaron Olmstead Chapter NSDAR. Our diverse chapter actively participates in historical preservation, education, and patriotism service projects that DAR holds dear.
Our chapter participates in Wreaths Across America by placing wreaths on the graves of our veterans. We support local veterans by donating needed items to VA clinics, Freedom House, and Miss Liberty House. We send care packages, books, and cards to troops serving overseas. We advocate literacy and support education, both locally and through NSDAR committees. We advocate and promote conservation and environmental preservation, as well as historic preservation.
