  • The chapter was organized by State Regent Mrs. Gage Vohland on April 9, 1975 with 25 members. The name Loup Trail was chosen for the chapter as it represents the towns along the Loup River in which many of our members live. Old maps show Indian and trapper trails along the Loup preceding the roads built by settlers. The meaning of the word Loup is French for the word “wolf”.

    Do you think that have a Revolutionary Patriot in your family tree? Then you can become part of the DAR. Any woman is eligible for membership who is no less than eighteen years of age and can prove lineal, blood line descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence. Membership in the DAR honors and preserves the legacy of your Patriot ancestor. As a member of DAR, through participation in the Society’s various programs and activities, you can continue this legacy by actively supporting historic preservation, promotion of education, and patriotic endeavors. The Loup Trail would also like to encourage previous DAR member to consider reactivating and joining our chapter. DAR has programs and activities for everyone. Children, both boys and girls, from birth to the age of eighteen can be active in the Children of the American Revolution. Contact Candace Cain at 402-346-5508 for information. We would love to have prospective members come visit our chapter meeting.

    The Loup Trail chapter is looking forward to serving the surrounding communities for many years to come. Just as our DAR ancestors served their country.



  • The Loup Trail Daughters of the American Revolution in Nebraska hosted the 28th annual quilt show July 26-28, 2012, in the commons room at Burwell Jr-Sr High School. This year there were a variety of sixty-six beautiful entries from area quilters and crafters. The show honored quilts in 10 divisions of quilts. Nancy Striker won the People’s Choice award with her “Daddy’s Hands” quilted wall hanging that honored the military service of her father, Elton Striker. In the center of the quilt was her father's glove he wore when he served in the VFW Color Guard.
