Choctawhatchee Bay Chapter
Celebrating 50 Years of Service
Organized – April 22, 1967
Organizing Regent – Geraldine Adams Black
Named for Choctawhatchee Bay, the chapter has served Okaloosa County, Florida, since April 22, 1967. We are a progressive group of women dedicated to our founders’ vision of promoting American history, securing America’s future through better education, and promoting patriotism at the Local, State, and National level. Our chapter has proudly served our community for fifty years.
One of Florida’s largest and most active chapters, this non-profit, non-political, volunteer women’s service organization has a dynamic and growing membership of over 200 unique women from diverse backgrounds. In 2020, Choctawhatchee Bay Chapter was the first chapter in Florida to receive approval for placement of an America250! Revolutionary War Patriots Marker. In addition, ranted #1 in the state of Florida for Chapter Achievement at the 2020 NSDAR 130th Continental Congress.
DAR provides the opportunity to honor and preserve the legacy of patriot ancestors while contributing to important service projects. It is an opportunity to make life-long friends, gain leadership experience, and to be involved in meaningful programs that provide something for everyone.
