Welcome to Rancho Buena Vista Chapter’s website. We are one of 114 Daughters of the American Revolution chapters in the state of California. Our name is taken from the historic Rancho Buena Vista (RBV) Adobe in Vista, California. Our meetings are September through May and normally on the first Saturday of the month in Vista. Our members live in a wide area of Northern San Diego County and Southern Riverside County encompassing Vista, Oceanside, Carlsbad, San Marcos, Escondido, Valley Center, Fallbrook and Murrieta.
DAR is open to any woman age 18 and over who can prove direct lineage from a Revolutionary War patriot. We are non- religious, non- partisan. We invite you to scroll through our many events and chapter activities hoping it will inspire you to join our exuberant women’s group.
The DAR mission is to promote education, patriotism and historic preservation. Our enthusiastic members take on this mission by participating in the surrounding community. We have an interest group for everyone be it school essay contests for Good Citizen awards, Good Citizenship awards and Junior ROTC awards; working at the RBV Adobe cataloging and preserving museum pieces, decorating a room in the RBV Adobe for Christmas, cleaning it twice a year and setting up museum displays. We collect and deliver items to the La Jolla Veteran’s Hospital and cook for the active duty military as part of Project Patriot. We collect worn and tattered flags and dispose of them properly while teaching proper flag etiquette. Many of our members participate in genealogy research sleuthing for new supplemental Revolutionary War ancestors in their family’s lineage. Some of us are volunteer field genealogists and help new members with their application process while others are indexing genealogy documents for National Society DAR.
