The St. Tammany Chapter NSDAR was formed in Slidell, Louisiana, on November 1, 1960, by Gladys Parks Shackelford. Laura Leonard Crawford was the organizing regent. Our 13 founding members chose the name St. Tammany as an homage to the beautiful parish in which we are located. In 1967, our chapter began a Children of the American Revolution (C.A.R.) society, the Lafitte Society C.A.R. Chris Rougan was the organizing sponsor assisted by Rosita Pastoret.
Our chapter hosts monthly meetings during the school year and continues to provide myriad opportunities and activities for members year round. Our chapter participates in military and Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) exercises, supporting our veterans and active duty personnel, participating in veterans and Memorial Day events, speaker's series, social engagements, and field trips. We are united in our love of country and desire to make a difference in our community. We are dedicated, joyful, and a whole lot of fun!
