The Ohio Society of the Children of the American Revolution is part of the Great Lakes Region. Over the Fathers’ Day weekend in June the National Vice President William Fridenmaker, and Senior National Vice President Mr. Jeffrey Voris hosted the Great lakes Region Meeting in Columbus, Ohio.
Ohio Societies SAR President Ted Minier and DAR Regent Sandy McCann brought greetings to the CAR guests at the Banquet on Saturday night.
At the beginning of each meeting, the members recite the CAR Creed:
I believe in the Children of the American Revolution as an organization for the training of young people in true patriotism and love of country, in order that they shall be better fitted for American citizenship.
As a descendant of the Founders of my Country, I believe that my birthright brings a responsibility to carry on their work, and that as the boys and girls of 1776 took an active part in the War for Independence, so the boys and girls of today have a definite work to do for their Country.
As a member of the Children of the American Revolution, I believe it is my duty to use my influence to create a deeper love of country, a loyal respect for its Constitution and reverence for its Flag among the young people with whom I come in contact.
