Society Saturday - Writing Their Stories

Illinois Society Children of the American Revolution held their state conference in Moline Illinois.

State President Sarah Callahan presided over the conference.   Miss Callahan's project was "Writing Their Stories".  She raised money to help publish books containing interviews with veterans.

Members and seniors learned about all of the activities during the year.  Over the year, members learned about the Battle of Bunker Hill, conserving bees, George Washington's tent, and merchant marines.  They wrote letters to servicemen and sent donations to mountain schools.

Although there were reports, business, and voting for new officers, there was a lot of fun as well.  The children made new friends and renewed old friendships during the pizza party, pool party, and dance.
