C.A.R. Regional Tour

Every summer, the National Officers of the Children of the American Revolution tour around the country to meet the members and tell them about the theme for the year.  They stop in each of nine Regions and present their program through skits that they have written.

In Illinois, we are part of the Great Lakes Region.  This year, our Regional meeting was in Novi, Michigan.

Here is a skit that my daughter and her friend wrote to help raise money for the C.A.R. Voyager fund.  They were dancing to the tune "Friday".

Each region features a tour to a local attraction.  In Michigan, we went to Greenfield Village, a nationally renowned historic village.

The Regional meeting always ends with a formal banquet and dance.  Here is Amanda with National President Mary Lib Schmidt.

Mary Lib Schmidt is from Virginia.  She is the National President of C.A.R. for 2011-12.  Her theme this year is "Living the American Dream".  She is raising money to support the Fisher House foundation - an organization that provides lodging for family members of injured veterans while they are patients at a military or VA hospital.
