The Puc Puggy Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is the oldest chapter in the Lady Lake and The Villages area. We participate in many community service projects. Our ladies have a huge heart for our veterans and disadvantaged children in our adjoining communities. Our chapter programs are diverse and we take field trips to enhance our members' experiences and adventures.
The Puc Puggy Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, is named after William Bartram, a botanist who researched plant life in Florida in the 1770s. He lived with the Seminole Indians for a period of time, and they called him 'Puc Puggy,' the Seminole words meaning 'Flower Hunter.' Bartram discovered a tree native to Florida, which he named Franklinia in honor of his friend, Benjamin Franklin.
Our chapter was chartered on October 15, 1994, in Lady Lake, Florida. The organizing regent was Carolyn J. Foster.
