We inspire kids to want to learn more about history. Not just battles, but food, crafts, daily life. We teach about patriotism. The meaning behind the flag, the salute, the meaning behind the Constitution, what being a patriot means, and what leadership means. While the kids may be running the meetings, Senior Society members help steer the direction those meetings take.
Harriet Lothrop, a prominent citizen and 19th century children's author from Concord, Massachusetts, presented the idea for a children's organization to the Daughters of the American Revolution Continental Congress in 1895. C.A.R. was then chartered by the United States Congress.
Organized for the training of young people in true patriotism and love of country, C.A.R. has promoted this vision to thousands of its members. Now, in a second century of keeping patriotism alive, these boys and girls are the leaders of yesterday, today and tomorrow.
C.A.R., the nation's oldest, largest, patriotic youth organization, offers membership to anyone under the ages of 22, who is lineally descended from someone who provided military or civil service or gave material aid or support to the cause of independence during the American Revolution.
Welcome! As the current Senior Society President I invite you to explore our beloved society virtually and more importantly in person. Our Chichi-Okobee society is a small, but rapidly growing enthusiastic youth patriotic organization of dynamic young citizens within Sarasota and Manatee counties in addition to members residing in nearby Hillsborough County.
Our youth membership includes those as young as 2 years old through high school. We offer something for all children to become involved in the community. While the promotion of patriotism is a cornerstone for our society we also strive to teach our youth about service, American heritage, genealogy, conservation and so much more.
I look forward to seeing you in the community and further introducing you to our wonderful society.
