Any boy or girl under the age of twenty-one is eligible for membership in the National Society of the Children of the American Revolution who is lineally descended from a man or woman who, with unfailing loyalty, rendered material aid to the cause of American Independence as a soldier, sailor, civil officer, or recognized patriot in one of the several Colonies or States, or of the United States, provided that the applicant is personally acceptable to the Society.
Meetings and activities are planned for all ages with special consideration given to younger members.
Members gain invaluable leadership experience in conducting meetings, following parliamentary procedures and standard protocol, serving as delegates and speaking before groups at local, state and national conferences. The responsibility and privilege of selecting officers helps members gain an understanding of the democratic process.

State Theme 2016 - 2017: Honoring Old Glory
The Nevada State Society is raising funds to place flag retirement bins in communities around Nevada. Community partnerships will be created to ensure each bin has an organization willing to collect the flags and ensure their proper retirement and disposal.
Three bins have been placed in Carson City - at the Carson City Library, the Carson Flag Store and Grandma Hattie's restaurant.
To support Honoring Old Glory, please send your check payable to the Nevada State Society C.A.R., and mail it to Senior Treasurer Anita Sheard, 1803 Teal Drive, Carson City, NV 89701.
Together we can ensure continuing respect and honor for the American Flag!
National Theme 2016 - 2017: Freedom's Thunder
Each year, the National Society of the Children of the American Revolution creates a National Theme and the National President develops a project that will benefit the Society and the nation.
The National Theme for the 2016–2017 N.S.C.A.R. year is FREEDOM'S THUNDER.
The National Project is to raise funds for a new enhanced outdoor interpretive program – Artillery and Firing Station that will feature education on the siege of Yorktown and firing demonstrations of cannon at the new American Revolution Museum at Yorktown (ARMY).
In the course of our nation’s history there are landmark events that initiate a period of evolution for our republic. Only one holds the distinct claim to final liberation of our citizens from an oppressive rule. A battle that shook the foundation of the world’s ruling governments, set the stage for the beginning of a new independent nation, and bestowed liberty upon its citizens for all time. The Victory at the battle of Yorktown was the start of our new nation and set the stage for the laurels of freedom that we hold dear.
Please join me in making some noise to inspire, to awaken, and to remind people of the freedom that we cherish and refuse to take for granted. Together we can take the nation by storm with our message of freedom.
The American Revolution Museum at Yorktown is a staple of the historic battle site, an institution that tells the story of our patriot ancestors’ struggle for freedom and seeks to remind the current generation of its responsibility to actively covet and guard the liberty’s bestowed upon us. Yorktown was won due to the constant bombardment of British General Cornwallis’ defenses by the French and Continental gun crew; FREEDOM’S THUNDER.
Make welcome packages for homeless female veterans that go into The Shade Tree shelter.
