Society Saturday - Pierce Downer Pool Party

No, there wasn't a pool party in Chicago in October, I'm just late posting this.

The members of Pierce Downer Society, Children of the American Revolution met for their annual pool party (in August).  Members had fun in the pool, and in the sun.  They enjoyed refreshments and worked on plans for the upcoming year.

The members that day range in age from 2 months to 19 years.

One of the reasons that I enjoy having my daughters in C.A.R. is the friendships that they make.  The teenagers tend to take the younger members under their wing and help them along.  Members of all ages make friends from around the state and across the country by attending state and national meetings.  And, it's a good opportunity for children to learn about leadership, patriotism and history while having fun.
