The SAR Ladies Auxiliary
During the American Revolution, women filled important roles with the American army, and at home with their support. The women who went with, and followed the soldiers were known as camp followers.
The SAR Ladies Auxiliary was founded in California in 1984. In 2003 The National Ladies Auxiliary of the Sons of the American Revolution became a subordinate of the NSSAR with State organizations in California, Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Massachusetts, Ohio, and a group of members at large who lived in States without a Ladies Auxiliary. The Ladies Auxiliary in Nevada has raised thousands of dollars, which has been awarded as Scholarships to Members of the CAR, DAR, SAR, and their family members.
The purpose of the Ladies Auxiliary in Nevada (LANVSSAR) is to maintain an association of eligible ladies who are interested in the patriotic, historical, and educational objectives and purposes of the Nevada Society of the Sons of the American Revolution or Nevada SAR, to foster fellowship among relatives of Nevada SAR members, to be of help to Nevada SAR and its chapters when asked, and to help further the objectives and patriotic activities of the Society.
We the Ladies Auxiliary Sons of the American Revolution carry the weight of tradition, and the love of Country and liberty. We believe in the Constitution and recognize the sacrifices of our forefathers. We give our blessing for peace, liberty and pledge our devotion to the United States of America.
We shall be faithful and summon all citizens to walk in the way of our forefathers and to honor this great nation. We go with peace of heart and the safety of God's blessing.
Membership in LANVSSAR is open to those ladies who are legally related to a Sons of the American Revolution member in good standing; that is, wives, mothers, grandmothers, widows, sisters, daughters, nieces, aunts, granddaughters, etc.
