International Society of the Sons of the American Revolution
What Can You Do to Help the SAR?
Members are spread quite thin in the area covered by the
International District. Many live too far from other members
to participate in such group activities as meetings, dinners,
and historic commemorations.
However, you can still do things to support the SAR's
historic, educational, and patriotic goals. For example, you can
If you are an ITD member just let us know which activity you would
like to develop and we will find someone to work with you in making
good plans and carrying them through to completion.

- make an educational presentation to a local group or class
about the history of the United States during its struggle
- present an SAR award to a student or adult who provide
strong community leadership, for example present JROTC medals
at DOD Dependants' Schools around the world, coordinated through DOD
and the National SAR's JROTC/ROTC Committee.
- Sponsor an essay contest on "What is Good Citizenship"
or some such topic. Have SAR members judge, or assist
with the judging. As prizes use ribbons, SAR Outstanding Citizenship Pins,
and Bronze Good Citizenship medals. U.S. Savings Bonds are great
for U.S. youth who are temporarily overseas. Make the awards
at a school assembly.
- write a brief article about the struggle for independence
in the nation in which you reside; SAR newsletters in
the United States would be interested in publishing
such an article, and we might post them on our Web site.
- arrange for a visit from an SAR group from the
United States to help celebrate a local event or person that
related to the American Revolution or the struggle for independence
in the nation in which you reside.
- volunteer to work with a national SAR committee
(for example, transcribing written grave survey sheets into a database)
If you have other ideas, send them in.
