On February 22, 1915, Narcissa Prentiss Chapter became the newest DAR Chapter in Washington State. Starting with 29 members, it quickly grew to be an important women's service organization in the Walla Walla Valley. One hundred years later, our members continue the legacy of your early members giving many hours of volunteer service to our community and surrounding area.
Our chapter meets once a month September through May (no meeting in December or January) for a brief business meeting followed by an interesting program. We take time to socialize, often having lunch after our meeting. Please check our Calendar and plan to join us for a chapter meeting.
How did the Dragonfly become our Chapter’s Symbol?
On March 21, 2015, we celebrated our centennial by honoring the women from our past while celebrating with the women of today.
