Fox Valley CAR Sponsorship


Jon Fixmer Jon Fixmer The Childeren of the American Revolution (CAR) is a the oldest patriotic youth organization in the United States. Membership is open to anyone under the age of 22 who is a lineal descendent of a person who served in or rendered aid to the cause of American Independece. SAR, CAR and DAR are all similar organizations which serve different base membership. Members of CAR will often graduate to SAR or DAR when they reach adulthood. Likewise, SAR members often share their love of history and patriotism with younger family members in CAR. Our chapter liaisons for CAR are Jon Fixmer (left) and Mike Campagnolo (right).
