About the Job Winslow Chapter, NSDAR
Our chapter was founded following the principles of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution: Historic Preservation, promotion of Education and Patriotic endeavor to the people of our community.
We were founded in 1914 by 17 charter members, one of whom was Elida Winslow Lind, daughter of Job Winslow after whom our chapter is named. Job Winslow, born 10 July 1754 in Dighton, Massachusetts served as a corporal in Henry Jacksonís Continental Regiment for three years and later as a 2nd Lieutenant in Col. Isaac Deanís Regiment.
The Job Winslow Chapter, NSDAR, one of 52 DAR of Michigan chapters, is located in Traverse City, the Cherry Capital of the World! Hence, our chapter logo. Our membership is currently over 110 strong, and we serve Grand Traverse, Leelanau, Benzie, Antrim, Kalkaska, Charlevoix, and Emmet counties. Our meetings usually are held on the third Saturday of the month, March through November, at 11:00 AM.
Our chapter supports active military, local veterans, the community, and local schools through many programs and projects.
