History of the Tomoka Chapter
Represented by the Chapter Motto, Chapter Name, Charter Members, and Past Regents


Our Chapter Motto is: "Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty."


Chapter Name - Tomoka

Tomoka is derived from the name Timucua, designating an ancient Indian tribe, which inhabited an area of the wilderness in the northeast sector of what is now Florida. This tribe was, according to reliable Indian historians, a very unusual society of the indigenous American natives. They are known to have developed an Indian culture unsurpassed anywhere on this continent. They retreated into oblivion, for reasons unclear, shortly after the incursions of Spaniards at St. Augustine. A river, known today as Tomoka, coursing through their ancient domain, flows into the Atlantic near Ormond Beach. The Tomoka Chapter was organized on November 5, 1951.
