We are a non-profit,
non-political, women’s service organization that meets regularly
and enjoys the society of enthusiastic and patriotic women. We welcome
new members who are able to document their direct lineage to an
ancestor who served the American War For Independence either as a
soldier or as a citizen who aided the effort.
Please visit our Patriot page and contact us for help with your family genealogy. We would be pleased to invite you to one of our meetings.
