George Clinton Chapter, Wilmington, Ohio
Daughters of the American Revolution
Founded July 31, 1896
The George Clinton Chapter was organized at the home of Elouisa F. King Nichols on January 30,1896.
George Clinton was a delegate to the Second Continental Congress, a Brigadier General of the Militia, seven times Governor of New York, and Vice President of the United States. In 1810, Clinton County, Ohio, was named for him.
George Clinton Chapter promotes the DAR goals of patriotism, history, and education with programs at monthly meetings and participation in community events.
Yearly, we present a community service award to an outstanding member of the community.
We encourage local students to participate in the American History Essay contest. Good Citizens awards are given to a high school senior from each local high school.
Constitution Week is celebrated by proclamation from the mayor, articles in the local paper, and a display at Wilmington Library.
Members show support by riding in holiday parades.
With “Celebrate America” we report many volunteer hours.
Fourteen new members were welcomed into the chapter in 2013-2014.
Members give generously of their time to maintain, update records, and support programs at the History Center.
We are proud the last three teachers we selected as our local Outstanding Teacher American History award have been selected as State Teachers of the Year.
