Welcome to our Society Page:

C.A.R.

The Parkinson's Ferry Society Children of the American Revolution is pleased to welcome you to our web site. We are part of the National Society Children of the American Revolution (C.A.R.). We have field trips and meet in various locations around the Pittsburgh area. Our members range from newborn to age 21. We encourage new members and ideas all the time. We hold elections of local officers and encourage participation from members.

C.A.R., the nation's oldest, largest, patriotic youth organization, offers membership to anyone under the age of 21, lineally descended from someone who served in the Continental Army or gave material aid to the cause of freedom in the American Revolution. Organized "for the training of young people in true patriotism and love of country," C.A.R. has promoted this vision to hundreds of thousands of members. These boys and girls are the leaders of yesterday, today and tomorrow, now in a second century of keeping patriotism alive. Our Parkinson's Ferry Society members make a difference in their communities and the world around them.

If you want to become more involved in our world of historical preservation, patriotism, and education, please feel free to contact us.

Susan Gillette Meer, Senior Society President

About the Parkinson's Ferry Society, C.A.R.: Our society was formed on April 18, 1982, with ten organizing members. The name Parkinson's Ferry was selected because the place, Parkinson's Ferry, had world-wide fame as the rallying point during the Whiskey Insurrection in 1794. Our sponsoring chapter from the Daughters of the American Revolution is the Monongahela Valley Chapter.

We have members of all ages: from birth to age 21. We are an active chapter, holding local cookouts and meetings, attending state and national conferences, entering contests, and learning about history with a family-like feeling of togetherness.

Be sure to contact us if you have an interest in our society. We would love to meet you!
