SAR Needs You!

The Sacramento Chapter has reached a crossroads in regards to participation. We currently have 192 members in the Sacramento Chapter. Many of those who have provided leadership over the last 5-10 years have had to pare back their roles or step down completely because of health, age, or other commitments. It is time for a new group of members to step up and take the reins and lead the Sacramento Chapter. Those who have held these positions in the past are committed to helping you get up to speed and succeed. Now is the time for you to decide how you can help the Sacramento Chapter.

The Sacramento Chapter can boast that we have some of the best meeting programs, color guard and other programs compared to the other SAR Chapters in Northern California. But, while membership numbers remain constant, or increase slightly, our volunteer participation is dwindling to the point that we will have to start shutting down some of our core programs if we cannot increase volunteer leadership. This would be a tragic mistake and one that we hope you will not allow to happen.

We need officers, committee chairmen, co-chairmen, and committee members. We are also looking for your ideas and suggestions for making 2015 successful.

Who We Are
The Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) are direct descendants of those patriots that achieved the independence of the American people. The objectives of our organization are intended to perpetuate a more profound reverence for the principles of the government founded by our forefathers.
The Purpose of Our Society
The SAR is a historical, educational, and patriotic United States 501(c)3 non-profit organization that seeks to maintain and extend:
  • the institutions of American freedom
  • an appreciation for true patriotism
  • a respect for our national symbols
  • the value of American citizenship
  • the unifying force of e pluribus unum that has created, from the people of many nations, one nation and one people.
We do this by perpetuating the stories of patriotism, courage, sacrifice, tragedy, and triumph of the men who achieved the independence of the American people in the belief that these stories are universal ones of man's eternal struggle against tyranny, relevant to all time, and will inspire and strengthen each succeeding generation as it too is called upon to defend our freedoms on the battlefield and in our public institutions.

Preserve the memory of those whose service and sacrifice during the American Revolution secured independence for the American people.
  • Unite and promote fellowship among their descendants.
  • Inspire them and the Community with a more profound reverence for the principles of the government founded by our forefathers.
  • Encourage historical research in relation to the American Revolution.
  • Maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom, an appreciation for true patriotism, a respect for our national symbols, and the value of American citizenship.
  • Promote the purposes expressed in the preamble of the Constitution.
