Society Saturday - 2013 Great Lakes Regional Meeting

Every year, the National Board of the Children of the American Revolution travels the country on Regional Tour.  C.A.R. is divided into 9 regions consisting of 4-5 states each.  Each region hosts a meeting for members in that region where the National Board presents their goals for the year. 

This is the most "fun" meeting of the year because the Board uses skits and workshops to get their message across.  National President Caitlin Collins presented her National Project, supporting the Student Veterans of America.

At night, there was a banquet.  It is always good to see everyone dress up and act on their best behavior.  This is followed by a dance which the members (and some seniors) always enjoy.

Illinois State President Callah MeLeod reports on her state project.
