Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR)

DAR members nationwide all share a common bond of having an ancestor who helped secure the independence of the United States of America. These Daughters are passionate about community service, preserving history, educating children and honoring the men and women who serve our great nation. Deb Bowen, creator of A BOOK by ME, is a proud daughter in the Rebecca Parke Chapter in Galesburg. She speaks often in local chapters in Iowa and Illinois and serves as the Service for Veterans Chairman in DAR District 1 in Illinois.

"I'm passing along the lessons from the Greatest Generation and others who have lived through hardship to future generations. Our subject's humility, sense of responsibility, and work ethic are inspiring. Having a student interview someone with a powerful story to tell is the greatest gift I can give them and those who will one day read their book." Deb Bowen
