Membership

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 descendents 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.

John Ashley Society is a proud part of the Nevada State Society Children of the American Revolution.

State Theme 2017 - 2018: Honoring Old Glory

Peter with a flag retirement bin

 

The Nevada State Society is raising funds to place flag retirement bins in communities around Nevada. Community partnerships will be created to ensure each bin has an organization willing to collect the flags and ensure their proper retirement and disposal.

Each bin costs $350 to place. Our first bin is at the Carson Valley Museum and Cultural Center in Gardnerville. How many more bins can we place?

To support Honoring Old Glory, please send your check payable to the Nevada State Society C.A.R., and mail it to Senior Treasurer Anita Sheard, 1803 Teal Drive, Carson City, NV 89701.

Together we can ensure continuing respect and honor for the American Flag!

National Theme 2017 - 2018: Browsing History

Freedom's Thunder

Each year, the National Society of the Children of the American Revolution creates a National Theme and the National President develops a project that will benefit the Society and the nation.

The National Theme for the 2017–2018 N.S.C.A.R. year is BROWSING HISTORY.

This year, N.S.C.A.R. will be BROWSING HISTORY by raising funds for the creation of James Monroe Online (JMO) in a partnership with James Monroe’s Highland and the University of William and Mary. JMO will be a free and open online portal to access images and searchable transcriptions of the archival collections devoted to our nation’s fifth president, James Monroe.

James Monroe once said, “It is by a thorough knowledge of the whole subject that our fellow-citizens are enabled to judge correctly of the past and to give a proper direction to the future.” JMO addresses what has been a major impediment to Monroe scholarship to date by giving scholars and laypeople alike access to the comprehensive works of James Monroe in a single free-access portal.

Please join N.S.C.A.R in digitizing the works of the last founding father. Together we can expand the legacy, knowledge, and appreciation of James Monroe and his lifetime commitment to public service.
