Welcome to the James K. Polk Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, chartered in Mena, Arkansas!

The James K. Polk Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, was chartered on December 12, 2009. It was named in honor of James K. Polk, the 11th President of the United States who served from 1844-1848.


A chapter of the DAR of the same name existed in Mena, Arkansas, from 1939 until 1974. One of the first activities of the new chapter was a Heritage Tea to honor those ladies from the old chapter and their descendants still living in the Mena area.

The James K. Polk Chapter endeavors to promote and foster education, historic preservation, and patriotism through programs and activities. These include giving DAR Good Citizenship awards to outstanding local students in Mena and surrounding towns, sending supplies to troops stationed overseas, and an annual Heritage Tea to celebrate the history and achievements of those who settled this part of Arkansas.

The James K. Polk Chapter holds daytime meetings the third Thursday of January, March, April, September, October and December at 1:30 pm; and evening meetings the third Thursday of February, May, and November at 6:30 pm..
