What is C.A.R.? The National Society of the Children of the American Revolution, founded in 1895, is the oldest patriotic organization for youths in our country. Membership is open to descendants of patriots of the American Revolution (i.e. someone who rendered material aid to the cause of American Independence as a soldier, sailor, civil officer, or recognized patriot in one of the several Colonies or States, or of the United States).
What do we do? Members gain invaluable leadership experience in conducting meetings, following parliamentary procedures and standard protocol, serving as delegates and speaking before groups at local, state and national conferences. The responsibility and privilege of selecting officers helps members gain an understanding of the democratic process. Activities have included: laser tag, hay rides and apple picking, pool parties, water park visits, marching in parades, visits to historic sites on the East Coast, visits to retirement homes, conservation projects, debutante presentations, and more!
