Daughters of the American Revolution

The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) is a service organization open to any woman age 18 years or older who can prove lineal descent from an American Revolutionary War Patriot. Much of the work of DAR is accomplished by volunteers in its chapters across the United States and internationally in order to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism.


Estrella Chapter, NSDAR, is a local chapter of DAR. Our chapter is based in Sun City West, Arizona, and our members come from many parts of the area and beyond.

Our Chapter

In keeping with the purpose of the National Society, chapter members work together on numerous projects in order to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism. We all have busy lives, so our projects offer ways to contribute that fit our schedules. We keep in touch across our many service projects through monthly meetings held October through May. We enjoy a business meeting and an interesting program related to our mission of patriotism, education, and historic preservation followed by a social time.

Visitors are welcome! We invite you to contact our chapter registrar for a meeting invitation. She will also help you get started in becoming a member of DAR, including tracing your heritage to find an American Revolutionary War Patriot.

Chapter History and Namesake

In September 1990, forty charter members gathered to officially become the first newly organized chapter of DAR in the Sun City West area. Estrella, Spanish for star, was chosen for the chapter’s name, establishing an appropriate connection with the thirteen stars bordering the insignia of DAR.

The Estrella Mountain Range, visible from Sun City West, stretches east to west. These mountains and the bright stars overhead inspire our imagination and dedication.
