The Battle of Saratoga C.A.R. meeting

For our November Dominguez y Escalante society meeting, we learned about the Battle of Saratoga.  We were pleased to hear from this wonderful C.A.R. member about how it was the turning point of the American Revolution and he even brought a few props!

 

 

Uintah Chapter Flag Ceremony

The Dominguez y Escalante C.A.R. society was invited to participate in the Uintah Chapter’s October meeting as part of the flag ceremony.
In spite of never having done this before, only observed, they did quite well.

Afterwards, we were invited to participate in making some stocking stuffers for veterans.

Hard at work!


It was a great learning experience for our young C.A.R. members!

Constitution Meeting and Activity

We held our first C.A.R. meeting of the year on Saturday.  We had great participation from our C.A.R. members in the opening ritual and during our Constitution activity.

The DAR State Regent attended our meeting

We were having too much fun and the meeting was brief and to the point, that this is the only picture we have of our activity–using a nib pen to sign a mock Constitution!

As much as that kind of pen was unfamiliar to our C.A.R. members, they did a GREAT job signing their names.  Nib pens are messy and unusual to use, we ended up with a fair bit of ink on our hands but none on our clothes!

Welcome to the Dominguez y Escalante Society C.A.R.!
