About Us

St. Tammany Chapter, NSDAR, was chartered on November 1, 1960, in Slidell, Louisiana, with 13 founding members. We have grown to over 40 members, and our members have served as Louisiana State Society, NSDAR, state officers and state committee chairs. We are active in our community supporting active-duty military and veterans. We sponsor teachers in community classrooms, award Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (JROTC) and Civil Air Patrol (CAP) medals, and sponsor the DAR Good Citizens Award and Scholarship Contest and the American History Essay Contests each year. Our chapter members come from all walks of life and ages. We are an active chapter with a whole host of activities and projects. 

We meet monthly in the evenings at various locations. Our meetings often include guest speakers, field trips, and service projects, but we also find time to socialize.  If you would like to join us for a meeting, just click the button below.
