About Us

The Lake Minnetonka Chapter usually meets the fourth Saturday each month.

Members come from Wayzata, MN; Minnetonka, MN; and areas surrounding
Lake Minnetonka in the western suburbs of Minneapolis and St. Paul.

The Lake Minnetonka Chapter of the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution, was founded in 2005 and named for the spectacularly historic and beautiful Lake Minnetonka in the area we serve. Our membership is drawn from the West Metro suburbs of Minneapolis, including our home base of Wayzata, and cities like Minnetonka, Excelsior, Medina, Chanhassen, Eden Prairie, St. Michael and Plymouth. The chapter is committed to promoting and honoring patriotism, American History education, historic preservation and veterans. Chapter activities include:

  • Annual “Plant a Flag for Freedom” Veterans Day Event at Heritage Park, Wayzata
  • “Outstanding Teachers of American History” Awards in area school districts
  • Award-winning scholarship and Essay Contest entrants
  • Recognition of Constitution Week in conjunction local schools and government
