The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) in Delaware County and nearby areas have embraced the Destination Delco Poppy Program and featured it at their recent meeting at the Corinthian Yacht Club in Essington.

As stated by Susan Mescanti, Commemorative Events Chairman, “We would love to be included among those groups and individuals participating in the World War I Commemorative Events.”

The DAR, founded in 1890 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America's future through better education for children.

Most of DAR’s volunteer work is accomplished by the grassroots efforts of chapters on the local level which focus on the mission areas of DAR by encouraging members to become involved in these initiatives in their local communities.
