Tucson Chapter

 
The Tucson Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution was chartered on 12 December, 1964.  We are the oldest continuously functioning Chapter in the State.  We currently serve all of Southern Arizona and are the home Society for several current and past state officers, including the 2009-10 State President, and other national and state committee chairs and members.
 
As written up in the Fall 2007 issue of the SAR Magazine, we sponsored the Arizona Society's dedication of the SAR memorial plaque in the newly re-built Tucson Presidio, honoring the contribution of the Spanish soldados to the American Revolution.
 
Meetings are held on the third Saturday of the month except during the summer (June - August) and when there is a conflicting State meeting (February, April and November).  We meet for breakfast and an informative talk from 9 to 11 A.M. at the American Legion Morgan McDermott Post 7, 330 W. Franklin St., Tucson.
 
We have interesting speakers on a variety of subjects.  Recent topics include Family History Research in the Revolutionary War era, humorous aspects of Tucson's history, Revolutionary War medicine, the origins of our "place names," including "Arizona," and medical aspects of the death of George Washington.
 
Our activities include the JROTC and ROTC awards, a newly revitalized and very active Eagle Scout award program, Celtic Festival and Presidio Soldado participation, numerous Color Guard activities and especially the Law Enforcement Awards dinner, which is held in conjunction with our annual meeting in January.  Thanks to compatriot Warren Alter, National Committee Chair, we lead the nation in this!

 

All SAR members, local or visiting, their wives, friends and all prospective members and guests are welcome and encouraged to attend our chapter meetings.  We would love to have you join us!

 

Our own papparazzo, Al Niemeyer is responsible for most, if not all, of the photos on the Tucson Chapter pages.  He also does the photography at many SAR events around the state.
