  • The wreath laying service on September 15 at the American Veterans Traveling Tribute Wall was a moving experience as our Sevier Station Society President, Mary Bailey Grubbs, traced the name of a fallen relative. As we witnessed the Color Guards from local high schools and other organizations, Fort Campbell, KY paratroopers descended with an enormous American Flag. It was a memorable experience for all.

  • On September 22nd, Sevier Station Society members visited the Montgomery County, TN Archives. It was amazing to tour the facility, check out deeds on the microfilm machine, and handle and clean 19th Century documents with archival gloves. We even got to learn more about the subject of the national project, "James Monroe Online," by examining and transcribing a letter written by President James Monroe. We presented the archivist, Miss Jill, with a "Mary's Magical Garden" state project pin. Thanks to the archives' staff for an amazing experience!

  • On September 16, Sevier Station Society boys and girls met at Fort Defiance Civil War Park in Clarksville, TN for Sevier Days. Wow, were we impressed with the Native American and colonial frontier re-enactors! The program also included an authentic Revolutionary War fife and drum performance! Did you know that the drummers' coats were red? They were red so that the officers could see the drummers even through smoke!

  • Towamencin Society C.A.R. President Andrew and Honorary President Grace rang the bell at the Bucks County Court House in honor of Constitution Day.  We received a proclamation from Doylestown Mayor Ron Strouse and from Honorable United States Representative Brian Fitzpatrick.  Former United States Representative Michael Fitzpatrick presented us with a signed copy of the Constitution.  Andrew led the Pledge of Allegiance while Senior President Susanne Johnston read the Preamble to the Constitution.

  • What a special treat for Towamencin Society C.A.R. when Honorary State C.A.R. President and archeologist Kat Turner came to talk about archeologists and paleontologists.  She showed us some of the digs in which she participated, some of her tools, and some of the artifacts she collected.  Our pee wee's colored dinosaur pictures had a scavenger hunt and did a dinosaur dig.

  • On September 15, 2017, children from local schools participated in Friday's School Program day. Chief Peshewa Society Children of the American Revolution dressed in time period clothing and demonstrated toys and games of the American Revolutionary era at the three-day Koh-Koh-Mah & Foster Living History Re-enactment Encampment. During this time, they handed out flyers to promote C.A.R. membership.

  • John Fox, State President of the Mississippi State Society C.A.R., visited the four corners of Mississippi to attend all four district workshops of the Mississippi State Society DAR.  At each meeting he had the opportunity to speak to the Daughters about the state theme and project of Mississippi C.A.R. and to promote C.A.R. in our state. He also had a display table to promote “Browsing History” and the national project of our national president, Erin Moore.

  • The Mississippi State Society turned out in large numbers to welcome the members and guests of the South Central Region to Jackson, Mississippi on June 18-19, 2017.  Pictured here are most of the members, guests and seniors of the Mississippi delegation. All had a blast and learned a lot.  Kudos to the National Board for their efforts to provide insightful and fun programs and ideas for our upcoming C.A.R. year!
