What We Do

Notable Speeches by SAR Members

One of President General Lindsey Brock's goals during his 2014-2015 term in office was to compile an archive of notable speeches that SAR members have given at various SAR and/or civic events. Many times, members are asked to give a speech at a local chapter meeting or other community group. While it can be challenging to come up with an idea for a presentation or historic research topic, consulting existing speeches made by SAR members can be very helpful in this endeavor. This archive is also a good resource for school projects. Listed below are a few samples from this archive for your use; please check back often for updates!

If you have a speech you would like to add to the archive, please send it to Ms. Rae Ann Sauer in Microsoft Word format so it can be easily downloaded by other SAR members and interested visitors. You will be identified on the website as the author of any submitted speeches.
