Founded in November of 1939, the Patience Wright Chapter is one of the oldest DAR chapters in Orange County. We have a dynamic group of women working to make a difference in our community by sponsoring welcome home gifts for wounded warriors, encouraging good citizenship for elementary school students, and rewarding the study of American history in middle school and high school students. 

We support our local Children of the American Revolution (C.A.R.) chapter by doing community service projects together in our local area.

Our members are artists, academics, novelists, choreographers, teachers, executives, business owners, retired women, students, and stay-at-home moms all eager to honor their heritage and serve their community. Our meetings are typically held in the Laguna Beach area on the third Saturday of each month, September to May inclusive. Our programs are educational and fun!

In 1966, members of the Patience Wright Chapter were founders of the popular Patriots Day Parade in Laguna Beach, held in March each year. Read the full history by visiting the Patriots Day Parade website. Shown here is Past Regent Grace Wethe getting ready to ride in the parade in 1967. 

Oh, how times have changed. While this chapter continues to show our patriotic spirit year after year by participating in the Patriots Day Parade, and supporting our local schools and veterans, this is not your mother's DAR... come out and join us!
