  • On August 11, 2019, Francis Hopkinson Society visited the Moland House in Hartsville, Pennsylvania, for an educational and fun packet planning event. Members watched a video about the Moland House and learned about efforts made to preserve its important history. We toured the home, which was General Washington's Headquarters for 13 days during the Revolutionary War and where Washington first met Count Pulaski. We also practiced our teamwork skills at our exciting Laser Tag event on Sunday, September 8, 2019. Our society is proud to be a Force on the Move!

  • The RISSCAR state packet meeting was a success! The children enjoyed hearing about the State and National Projects and the fun activities the State Officers and Chairmen have planned. We continued to learn about George Washington’s Rules of Civility and Decent Behavior, used Kahoot to learn about Robert’s Rules, learned how to organize a meeting agenda, played a leadership themed game of telephone, practiced teamwork with fun games.  Our pee wee Patriot had a special request for Musical Chairs, and we played to the music of “Hamilton”.  A fun and informative time was had by all!

  • The RISSCAR completed the first pillar of their “Digitalizing History” State Project with the go-live of the state website, www.risscar.org designed by State President, Reed Tremblay.  The site is intended to promote membership in the state society with fun and engaging photos and information and inspirational quotes form George Washington in support of the National Project.  It also serves to “digitalize history” with profiles of members’ Patriots.   For the project, each child created a profile of his or her family’s Patriot to be shared via the site.  This exercise helped members better understand their own connection to the American Revolution.  The State President also used the website to promote supporting organizations such as local Colonial-era museums, DAR, SAR and SR websites.  Some supporting organizations have agreed to link back to the State CAR website to increase search engine rankings for the site.

  • Caleb Cushing Society Members joined South Dakota State Regent Robin Fansler, Laura Ingalls Wilder Chapter President Julie Shrader, and Mary Chilton DAR members in a rock painting event. The kids demonstrated to the DAR ladies how to use the paint pens to create messages about Constitution Week in September. The kids also explained that the finished rocks will be distributed throughout the Sioux Falls area for others to find. Then they post pictures of their finds before hiding them again. The kids liked using the glow in the dark paint too in addition to stickers and patriotic messages #SiouxFallsRocks #605Rocks #MCDAR
