OUR STORY

Our Local Society

The Lake Minnetonka Society of the Children of the American Revolution (CAR) was founded by Adrienne Morrison (DAR) in 2005, to teach young adults leadership skills, patriotic values and an understanding of our democratic system.  

 

WHO WE ARE

Our Roots

The National Society of the Children of the American Revolution (N.A.C.A.R. or C.A.R.) was founded in 1895 to instill patriotic values in the youth of America by Harriett M. Lothrop (1844–1924), a member of National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). 

C.A.R. is the nation's oldest, largest, non-partisan patriotic youth organization. It offers membership to anyone under the age of 22, lineally descended from someone who 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.


C.A.R. activities focus on patriotism, service, and education about our American heritage. It was was founded on April 5, 1895, and continues both locally and nationally to this day. 

The age range in the organization is birth to twenty-two. Meetings and activities are planned for all ages with special consideration given to younger members. Senior members (over age twenty-two) act as mentors for the members in their activities and projects.

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.
