Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America's future through better education for children.
Great Choptank Parish was selected for our Chapter name because the historical significance of the parish system in the Anglican Church and the colonial settlement of the area. Since the time of the earliest English settlers in Dorchester County, the Great Choptank Parish has been centered in Cambridge, Maryland. The parish is active today, with Christ Episcopal Church celebrating 325 years in 2017.
The chapter organized on December 5, 2016 and with this event, a return of the DAR presence based in the county became a reality.
