Kan Yuk sa Chapter NSDAR
The Kan Yuk sa Chapter NSDAR welcomes you to Today's DAR.
Meetings are held on the first Thursday evenings or Saturday morning of the month
September through May.
The Kan Yuk sa Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR), carries out the mission and objectives of the DAR in Jacksonville, Florida. We promote patriotism, service to our community and to our country and the conservation of the beautiful land in which we as Americans live. We help educate our students and recognize the special accomplishments of young people. We work to preserve our history and historical sites. We welcome our new citizens and introduce them to life in America and help care for our veterans and their families.
The chapter name, Kan Yuk sa, is the Seminole Indian name for Florida with Kan meaning "land or ground" and Yuk sa meaning "point of." Our chapter was chartered in 1950.
Each year our chapter presents American History Essay Awards, DAR Good Citizens medals, and JROTC/ROTC medals to students. We also support our local C.A.R. Chapter, Princess Malee Society, local historical preservation projects such as the Houston Cemetery, and patriotism.
Our Florida Society has more than 11,000 members in over 107 chapters. We would love to help you find your path to membership. Contact us for more information on joining the Kan Yuk sa Chapter NSDAR.
