Our State Project: Soar the Skies with CSCAR (2018-19)
“My project is to raise awareness and funds to support the work that A Place Called Hope and Horizon Wings is doing, especially for the American bald eagle, which will be a major part of my project. Have you ever seen a bald eagle fly through the sky with its majestic wings spread wide? Surely, it demonstrates the power and strength that it represents, our United States of America. N.S.C.A.R. believed in our eagle so much that it became part of our national logo. Eagles have been the focus of two of our National Projects more than 20 years ago. In 1994-95, N.S.C.A.R worked to place a bronze eagle at the National Zoo in Washington DC, and the next year, we supported “Our Bald Eagle Adoption”. There was a time when there were no eagles in Connecticut. Why? Experts say Bald Eagles had all but disappeared from Connecticut in the 1950s because of DDT and other pesticides. After the harmful pesticides were banned however, a pair of eagles returned to Connecticut in the early 1990s and the population has been growing steadily ever since with eagle sightings this year in many parts of the state. Today, up to 100 eagles winter in Connecticut, from December to early March, along major rivers and at large reservoirs. My project will cover our C.A.R. mission: historic preservation, education, and patriotism. Conservation will be key to my year as we learn and work to make sure our American Bald Eagles are safe from human harm. When injured, the public needs to know what to do to help find aid and rehabilitation, and hopefully, be released back into the wild. My plan is to publicize the work that C.S.C.A.R. does to support and protect eagles and encourage the public to become involved.”

The American’s Creed ~ William Tyler Page
I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people, whose just powers
are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States;
a Perfect Union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for
which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.
I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey its laws; to respect
its Flag; and to defend it against all enemies.
The C.A.R. Creed ~ Ethel Vance Moser
I believe in the Children of the American Revolution as an organization for the training of young people in true
patriotism and love of country, in order that they shall be better fitted for American citizenship.
As a descendant of the Founders of my Country, I believe that my birthright brings a certain responsibility to carry on
their work, and that as the boys and girls of 1776 took an active part in the War for Independence, so the boys and
girls of today have a definite work to do for their Country.
As a member of the Children of the American Revolution, I believe it is my to duty to use my influence to create a
deeper love of country, a loyal respect for our Constitution and a reverence for its Flag, among the young people
with whom I come in contact.
