Florida is honored to have achieved Trailblazer status for the Honor Roll for Outstanding Support of Junior Membership in 2016, 2017, and 2018! We met all five standards to be named to our Honor Roll. These standards include: 1) Naming a State Outstanding Junior or at least two Chapter Outstanding Juniors; 2) Enrolling at least one New-Friend or Best Friend of Junior Membership; 3) Hosting a Junior Event at a state meeting or holding a statewide Junior Event open to all Junior members; 4) Having a sales table featuring national sales items at a state meeting and remitting the profit to the Treasurer General’s office; and 5) Having chapters or members make direct donations to the Helen Pouch Memorial Fund. The National Junior Membership Committee was established in 1937.
The Helen Pouch Memorial Fund is the National Junior Membership Committee’s official fundraising project. This fund is named in memory of Helen Pouch (1901-1919) who was the daughter of Mrs. William H. Pouch, the first national chairman of the Junior Membership Committee in 1937, and later President General, 1941-1944. The fund provides scholarships, medical aid, and general financial assistance to the two DAR schools, Kate Duncan Smith DAR School in Alabama, and Tamassee DAR School in South Carolina and the four other approved schools.
The Florida State Society enthusiastically supports Junior Membership by encouraging active participation within all levels of the organization.
Florida Daughters are proud of our Juniors and look forward to “Squeezing the Day!”Chapters About FSSDAR About DAR Scholarships
