Children in Columbia and Lexington, South Carolina have been a part of the Children of the American Revolution since 1985. It is open to any child age birth to age 21 who are descended from a patriot that served in the American Revolution.
We have so much fun together! We enjoy fun activities all year long. We also complete service projects for children, families, veterans, and service men and women. We have marched in parades. We have also visited veteran nursing homes where we have gone caroling, planned parties, and presented cards and gifts. We have sent care packages to soldiers overseas and plan to go to deployment activities this year. Our society has also participated in the Adopt a Highway program and helped to clean up trails at a state park. As kids helping kids, TJAS members have been involved with Tamassee DAR School by adopting a student, collected items for the school, and visiting for Krazy Kids Day.
We also learn about our country through programs at our meetings based on the programs goals set by the National Society and the State Society. We have learned about the American Indians, our Nation's heritage, history and the government. What will we learn next?
We are dedicated to making the ideals of the men and women who strived to create the United States of America. Interested in becoming a member? Contact us today!
The Daughters of the American Revolution sponsors the Junior American Citizens Club. It is open to all children from preschool through the high school. Our JAC meetings are held in conjunction with our C.A.R. meetings. Members have the opportunity to participate in great contests that fit just about every interest - poetry, photography, short essay, posters, stamp design, and community service. TJAS has won multiple awards in the National, State, and Local contest for community service (group division) during the years.
Congratulations - TJAS has a history of strong leadership!
