The Letitia Coxe Shelby Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR), was formed on October 21, 1949, with Mrs. Enoch E. Simms as organizing regent. Letitia Coxe Shelby, for whom the chapter is named, was the wife of Brigadier General Evan Shelby of Virginia and Mrs. Simms is one of their direct descendants. Letitia and Evan's son, Isaac, became the first Governor of Kentucky.

Any woman regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background is eligible for membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) who is at least eighteen years of age and can prove lineal, bloodline descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence during the period between April 19, 1775, and November 26, 1783. 

For information on membership in the DAR, visit the Become a Member webpage on the NSDAR website.

Our meetings are held monthly on Friday afternoons with an occasional Saturday morning meeting, January through June and September through December. Most members are from La Mesa and surrounding areas, however, some members are from other areas as well. Local residency is not a requirement for membership in any chapter. Prospective members are welcome to our chapter meetings. We would love to have you join us!
