FROM DAUGHTERS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION

Mission San Juan CapistranoMission San Juan Capistrano Executive Director Mechelle Lawrence Adams speaks to members of Daughters of the American Revolution after the announcement of the organization’s generous grant to the mission.

Mission San Juan Capistrano is pleased to announce it has received the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution Special Project Grant, with sponsorship from the Irvine Ranch chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

The $10,000 grant will help fund the Sala Preservation Project Earthquake Retrofit of the Parapet Wall.

The Sala Preservation Project is the preservation effort of the original 18th century building and adjoining spaces such as the Sacred Garden and Campanario or bell wall. This building has served as padres quarters, a chapel, a home and a curio shop and has withstood the test of time, change in ownership, and the prosperity, decline and renewal of a landmark that is now nearly 240 years old.

The Daughters of the American Revolution is an organization of more than 930,000 women who have joined the organization since it was founded close to 125 years ago. They became members to honor their heritage as well as make a difference in their communities across the country and the world.
