NSSAR Gives Thanks

November 15, 2011, was a day for the NSSAR to give thanks for the support given by the local community.  The NSSAR hosted its 1st Annual Appreciation Luncheon in honor of its many volunteers and community supporters.  As a non-profit organization, the SAR relies heavily on its volunteers to help fill in the gaps that come with having a small national staff.  Without this help, the vital mission goals of education, history and patriotism would suffer greatly.  Therefore, the national office decided last year to come up with a small way to show appreciation for all the contributions of the community throughout the year.  This year around 40 people were able to attend the luncheon, including Secretary General Stephen Leishman, Librarian General Michael Wells, and Former President General David Sympson.  

Newly appointed Volunteer Coordinator Lance Carter and his wife Judy were also in attendance.  After some words of thanks by Executive Director Don Shaw and Librarian General Michael Wells, a buffet-style lunch was enjoyed by all.  Afterwards, raffle prizes were given out to several lucky attendees and everyone received a small door prize.  We encourage all members of the community to volunteer at the National office.  

There are a variety of needs to fit any volunteers interests, from library to education, merchandise to genealogy.  Anyone interested should contact Lance Carter at (606) 833-5778 or carter612atroadrunner [dot] com.
