KATONAH, N.Y. – The John Jay Society and the National Society of Children of the American Revolution have scheduled an introductory meeting for a new children’s group starting in Westchester, Rockland and Putnam counties.
Membership in the local chapter of the Children of the American Revolution is expected to be the primary topic of discussion during the 2 p.m. meeting Saturday at the John Jay Homestead in Katonah, according to a statement.
According to organizers, children who join the club will have ample opportunities to participate in historical, educational and patriotic activities while giving back to the community. The club aims to produce good citizens and strong leaders and to promote a love for the United States and its history, organizers said.
To qualify, a child must be a descendant of an American revolutionary patriot, according to organizers, who said that anyone who is unsure if their child qualifies can attend the meeting and speak to someone able to research the family’s heritage.
The National Society of Children of the American Revolution is open to all qualified children up the age of 22, according to organizers.
