The Doña Ana Chapter was organized 13 November 1948 and was known as the Alice Adam Chapter. Mrs. Charles E. Tede served as the Chapter's first Regent 1948-1950. Three years later, the name was changed to Doña Ana Chapter. Las Cruces is nestled between the Organ Mountains and the Rio Grande River. The area is home to the Fort Selden Ruins, the Old Mesilla Historic District, and New Mexico State University, home of the "Aggies." Luncheon meetings are held the third Thursday of the month, 11:30 a.m., September to May. A joint DAR/SAR (Sons of the American Revolution) Flag Day meeting is usually held the second Saturday in June. You are cordially invited to contact us for membership information or if you would like to attend our meetings.
