  • GA State President David Jimenez brought greetings to the Central East Georgia Societies of Benjamin Fitzpatrick, Eagles of Liberty, Elisha Winn, Liberty Tree, Sukey Hart, and William Daniell as they celebrated C.A.R.’s 125th Birthday.

Members enjoyed learning about the significance of historical sites, the impact of women on the foundation and growth of the U.S.A, and the leaders that are featured on our money. Everyone had great FUN celebrating C.A.R.’s 125th Birthday while planning for the National Convention.

  • On August 14, 2019, several members of the PA state society made a trip to the Liberty USO at The Indiantown Gap also known as "The Gap." At the Gap, members handed out bags full of snacks to each soldier that walked through the door on War Fighters Day. These bags were stuffed by the members of PA C.A.R. at the state workshop. At least 200 bags were given out. The soldiers enjoyed receiving the bags after their long day of hard work. The teamwork between the members was awesome to watch. 


    Seniors and the operations manager, Jenna Price, were a huge help in organizing this event. Being able to hand the bags to the soldiers was an amazing experience that brought energy and life into the project.

  • The Col. Samuel Ward Society of RI hosted a tour of the Tomaquag Museum in Exeter, RI for RI C.A.R. members and families.  The museum Curator, Ms. Loren Spears, a member of the Narragansett-Niantic tribe, shared how the local tribes were impacted by the American Revolution and how some tribal members ultimately fought for the First Rhode Island Regiment under Col. James Mitchell Varnum. In addition to the tour, children participated in a scavenger hunt around the museum and made pinch pots to try to replicate some of the pottery art found throughout the museum.  We even had one prospective member and her DAR mom join us!
