Understanding Service Opportunities

The  theme for the 2019-2020 administration is “Understanding Service  Opportunities.” This project supports active duty military personnel by  providing donations to the USO lounge at the Orlando International  Airport. The USO was founded in 1941 as a support system for the  military and their families. Today it continues to connect military  families and support the needs of active duty military. The donations  from this project will allow the USO to purchase all necessary items  that keep the lounge operating during business hours. Around 300,000  military personnel travel through Orlando International Airport each  year. For food alone, the USO spends $2,000 a month, meaning in one year  $24,000 is spent solely on food; all of which is donated. 


To  support this project, pins and bags will be on sale. Any involvement  whether it be time or money, will be greatly appreciated. Let’s make  this upcoming year a fantastic one!

Foundations of Freedom
This  project strives to connect history and leadership. By learning about  the early life of George Washington and the code of conduct he strived  to live by, members across the country can learn the foundations of  citizenship he developed at Ferry Farm. This project can be embraced by  all members, regardless of their geographic location. Ultimately, it is  an opportunity for members to learn about George Washington’s  upbringing, influences he had at a young age and experiences he received  given the circumstances of his boyhood.

C.A.R. has two goals to support these activities.
Members will raise funds for the reproduction Washington Family Desk at George Washington’s boyhood home. The replica desk would have been the desk that was in the parlor and  used by all members of the Washington household to write letters or do  school lessons. We will also support the development of Ferry Farm’s  web-based educational initiatives for students all over the world.

C.A.R. also has a second goal to highlight  the leadership development opportunities that the National Society  Children of the American Revolution offers our members. As our  creed says, “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.” What better way to become good citizens  than develop leadership skills that will last a lifetime?​
