State Regent 2022-2025

Gale Parsons Markley

Welcome! This is the official website for the Arkansas State Society, Daughters of the American Revolution, founded in 1893. The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded on October 11, 1890, and the national headquarters is located in Washington, D.C. DARis a non-profit, non-political volunteer women’s service organization.
DAR members come from a variety of backgrounds and interests, but all share a common bond of having an ancestor who helped contribute to securing the independence of the United States of America. Any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution is eligible to join. Daughters are vibrant, active women who are passionate about community service, preserving history, educating children, as well as honoring and supporting those who serve our nation. Won’t you join us?
I encourage you to fill out an interest form located at the top of this page. We have a team of people available to assist you. Thank you for your interest!

In DAR service and friendship,
