To promote the celebration of patriotic anniversaries.
To honor and cherish the Flag of the United States of America above every other flag.
To love, uphold and extend the principles of American liberty and patriotism.
CALENDAR OF EVENTS
Founded in 1895, the National Society of the Children of the American Revolution, is the oldest patriotic organization for youth in our country. Membership is open to descendants of patriots of the American Revolution.
Any boy or girl under the age of twenty-one is eligible for membership in the National Society of the Children of the American Revolution who is lineally descended from a man or woman who, with unfailing loyalty, 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, provided that the applicant is personally acceptable to the Society.
Meetings and activities are planned for all ages with special consideration given to younger members.
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.
