New Canaan – On the evening of March 13, 2014, the Hannah Benedict Carter Chapter, NSDAR, inducted six new members at a Wine and Cheese gathering in town. 

The new members are Rose Rothbart, Jean Grzelecki, Kitty Slattery, Barbara O’Connor, Lesley Cousley, and Junior, Breanna Kulkin.

Rose Rothbart has also accepted the Historic Preservation Chair position with the chapter and will be working on involving the chapter in preservation as well as recognizing local efforts in historic preservation.

Six prospective members attended the event as well and are working on their applications to the society. The chapter is holding a prospective member “Help” session on March 19, 2014 for any women 18 years or older that is interested in joining the DAR. 

This is a free help session and will be held from 11 am to 2 pm. Please email the membership chair at membership@newcanaandar.org for the location and the needed items for attendance. 

The chapter is very excited about its most recent growth and is looking forward to another great year. 

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890 to promote patriotism, preserve American history, and support better education for our nation's children.

Its members are descended from the patriots who won American independence during the Revolutionary War. With more than 175,000 members in approximately 3,000 chapters worldwide, DAR is one of the world's largest and most active service organizations.
