A workshop for women interested in joining the Lily of the Cahaba Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution will be held from Saturday, July 26 from 2-5 p.m. The workshop will be held in Meeting Rooms A and B (lower level) at Hoover Public Library, 200 Municipal Drive.
The free workshop offers an opportunity to learn more about membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) as well as receive assistance in identifying patriot ancestors and the application process. Any woman is eligible for membership who is 18 years of age and can prove lineal, blood descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence.
DAR members contributed a combined 3 million hours of community service around the world in 2013 alone. Many women also recognize that joining DAR is a way for them to honor and preserve their family history when their DAR application is approved, all of the genealogical family history that is included with it is conserved by the DAR for all future generations.
The Lily of the Cahaba Chapter meets the second Saturday of the month, September through May. The Chapter is based in Hoover and serves surrounding communities. For more information about the workshop or membership, contact Shelby Bailey at firstname.lastname@example.org
