Treasurer Judy Delmar of the Florida State Society Daughters of the American Revolution is greeted by Amelia Island Chapter Regent Rebecca Mayle before she spoke at the chapter’s latest general membership meeting. Ms Delmar, who is also treasurer of the Ponte Vedra Chapter, spoke not of finances but of the DAR Museum in Washington, D.C.
The museum, located at 1776 D Street, is the only decorative arts museum in the DC area. Its 30,000 objects depict the material culture and social history of early America, and the 31 period rooms reflect the making of the American home from 1690 to the 1930s. Each room represents a home in the state for which it is named, and the state society curates that room. The museum is free and open to the public six days a week.

Members of the Amelia Island Chapter contribute 5,000 volunteer hours and $5,000 in scholarships and awards in Nassau County each year. The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is the largest women’s service organization in the world and contributes over one million volunteer hours a year.
