  5. 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.
