Officers of Blue Springs Society, Florida Society Children of the American Revolution attended the August meeting of the William Dunaway Chapter,FLSSAR to report about the C.A.R. national and state projects for the 2017-2018 year.

They also thanked SAR members for their support of the "Remember the Arsenal" state project which provided the first professional exhibit at the Apalachicola Arsenal Museum in Chattahoochee, Florida. The hands-on child, friendly "Shot Tower" exhibit explains, with the press of a button, the making lead shot. The shot tower in Chattahoochee was the tallest structure in the Territory of Florida when it was constructed between 1834 and 1839.

The National project this year will help raise funds for the creation of James Monroe Online and the theme is "Browning History". The State theme is "Purrrfectly Patriotic". This project will raise funds for the Gary Sinise Foundation and for our endangered Florida panthers. The Blue Springs Society officers ended their report by preforming "Prowling Panther", a skit about two Florida park rangers who help an injured panther.

The C.A.R. guests enjoyed participating in the interesting program about the signers of the Declaration of Independence presented by William Dunaway President Earl Mathews, Jr. Our C.A.R. members have certainly learned American history!
