Revolution descendants gather in Texas March 14-16
SAN ANTONIO -- Young descendants of American Revolutionaries from all over Texas gathered in the Alamo City March 14-16 for the 87th annual state conference of the Texas Society Children of the American Revolution at the San Antonio Airport Hilton hotel.
Two San Antonians won high offices in the organization. Millie Camp, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Morris Camp, was elected second vice president, and Mary Lochellen Ripps, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gregory Ripps, was elected chaplain.
Membership is open to young people from birth to 22 years whose families can trace and document the child’s descent from someone who actively supported the colonies’ war for independence from Great Britain.
Besides election of officers, the state conference featured reports from 35 societies (chapters), presentations of scholarships and other awards, special fun for the younger members, a grand ball, and a memorial service.
Since last summer, Texas C.A.R. members have been raising funds for the Museum of the American Railroad in Frisco by selling collector pins. Each pin pictures railroad tracks leading from a red, white, and blue Texas star and proclaims, “Building the Lone Star State.”
C.A.R. members learn and share knowledge of American history, conservation, community service, and citizenship.
