The Idaho Society of the
Sons of the American Revolution

 
 
 

     The Idaho Society, SAR is in the process of forming a Color Guard. All interested members please contact President Randy Bailey or Color Guard Commander Terry Patterson for more information.


It was decided at the Board of Managers Meeting on 20 Oct 2016 to raise the Idaho Society, SAR annual dues to $20.00 from $10.00. This will aid the Idaho Society in raising the funds needed for the ROTC Scholarship and the ROTC and JROTC medals that are awarded each Spring.

It was also decided that we would start accepting Credit Cards for payment of dues, new application fees, and donations.
When this has been fully implemented, you will find a link to the application fees/dues/donations pages under our menu bar. There will be a small fee added to each Dues transaction to cover the cost of accepting your credit card. Our goal is to have this feature operational before our dues notices are mailed out this year.

     Organized on April 30,1889, the National Society, SAR was chartered by an Act of Congress June 9, 1906. The charter was signed by President Theodore Roosevelt, who was a member of the SAR. (http://www.sar.org/About/Origins)

     Today the SAR consists of 50 State Societies, with more than 500 local or regional SAR Chapters. From inception, the SAR has been dedicated to patriotic, historical and educational objectives. These are reflected in every SAR activity - all designed and conducted to help perpetuate understanding of, reverence for and preservation of those institutions of American Freedom delineated in the Preamble of our Constitution and in the injunctions of George Washington in his farewell address to the citizens of the Republic he led in war and in peace.

     The charter for the Idaho Society is dated February, 1909. We currently have two active Chapters within the Idaho Society. The charter of the Fort Boise Chapter, SAR is dated 24 February, 1958. The charter for the Teton Chapter, SAR is dated 1 January, 2014.
