Members of the Twin Falls Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution gathered in December to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the chapter’s organization.

The chapter’s first scrapbook was on display, a silent auction was held to raise funds for chapter projects and activities, and members and guests enjoyed a birthday cake and other treats.

DAR is a service organization of women who can prove lineal descent from an ancestor who served in the American Revolution. The chapter currently has 40 members from southcentral Idaho and is active in numerous projects that promote education, historic preservation, and patriotism. The chapter has a DAR Good Citizens scholarship program for high school seniors, annually participates in the citywide commemoration of Vietnam veterans, distributes flags on Veterans Day, sends Christmas cards to the military at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, and is currently collecting socks for veterans.
