A bit about our chapter
Nathan Hale Memorial Chapter DAR is just one of 3000 chapters in the United States. It was orgainzed in East Haddam, Connecticut on June 6, 1900. Today, our membership comprises 81 women from all over the country with the majority residing within Middlesex and New London counties. We vary our monthly meeting times and locations among the lower Connecticut River towns. Some meetings involve trips to sites across our beautiful State. We honor and remember Connecticut's State Hero, Captain Nathan Hale at our annual Saturday meeting held on or near his birthday, June 6th.
