A recent by-law passed by the INSSAR does not allow anyone to add to an application once it has been submitted for approval at the chapter or state level. So please email me a copy of the application for review before having the applicant sign the application.

SAR Indiana Ladies Auxiliary History
July 2021
with March 2022 update

The Indiana Auxiliary of the Sons of the American Revolution welcomes all women who are connected to a member of the Indiana Sons of the American Revolution.  The INLASAR serves as a vehicle to support SAR men in Color Guard activities, a support mechanism to raise monies for the state youth programs, an avenue for creating a basket usually of Indiana-made products for the national Ladies Auxiliary raffle during the annual SAR conference, and as a social outlet for its members.  Meetings are held during the three (previously four) meetings held by the Indiana SAR each year.  Meetings include a short business meeting and a program.  Legally, the Auxiliary is considered a committee of the state SAR and therefore are under their umbrella.

Dues for the INLASAR are $5.00 annually which automatically includes membership in the national auxiliary.  The fiscal year begins in April.  Dues cover incidental operating expenses of the auxiliary and an annual donation to the INSSAR for use in their youth programs.  Also available is a pin for $10 plus $3 if the recipient wishes it to be mailed.  Dues and pin purchases for the Ladies Auxiliary may be paid to Auxiliary Treasurer.  The Ladies Auxiliary elects officers every other April in uneven years who are installed during the SAR men’s meeting. 

Auxiliary Officers are eligible to receive the Indiana Gold Service Award after three years of service.  Previous recipients are: 
Martha Barnhart
April Legler
Dixie Oberlin
Kay Schnuck
Chris Cunningham
Marge Howell
Donna Betzner
Donna Sharp
Janet Kreps
Kathy Parkison

Recipients of a gold star for a second term (and other subsequent terms) of 3 years service as an officer are:
April Legler
Chris Cunningham

The Indiana Ladies Auxiliary was organized by Martha Barnhart in 2006.  Presidents were:
Martha Barnhart 2007-2009
Dixie Oberlin 2009-2011
Marge Howell 2011-2013
April Legler 2013-2015
Donna Sharp 2015-2017
Chris Cunningham 2017-2019
Kathy Parkison 2019-2022
Peg McGriff 2022 -

Clearly, the members of the Indiana Sons of the American Revolution took to heart Abigail Adams admonishment to her husband, John, to remember the ladies and have included the Ladies Auxiliary in programs for many years.

  250th Anniversary Medals
Posted by: JacobVink - 08-17-2021, 09:01 PM - Forum: America's 250th Anniversary - No Replies

Compatriots,

I have recently been in communication with the National 250th Anniversary Committee regarding the Bronze, Silver, and Gold 250th Anniversary Medals being awarded in the run up to the semiquincentennial. I would like to share some additional information and clarify some of the language that is on the medal application and points sheet. 

Any public event is eligible to count towards the medal, however it is necessary that there be some clear recognition of the 250th Anniversary for the event to be counted toward the point total. I was given some examples of ways to recognize the anniversary including the display of the 250th flag (available from the National Society), inclusion of the 250th Logo on any handouts of information from the event, making mention of the anniversary during the program, etc. As long as the 250th is recognized in some fashion, an event may be counted. If it isn't, the event cannot count. 

As an example: 2021 participation in the Shoals Catfish Festival Parade or the Gosport Lazy Days Parade in which the Color Guard carried the flag would count toward the medal. The Color Guard participating at Conner Prairie this year on July 4 would not be an eligible event as we made no clear recognition of the anniversary. 

Given that all compatriots have until 2033 to accumulate points for the bronze, silver, and gold medals, I'm optimistic we can have Indiana well represented among those earning the awards throughout the 250th celebrations. 

Very respectfully,

Photo St. Clair's Defeat - 230th Anniversary
Posted by: mingusboodle - 08-16-2021, 12:24 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

Is anyone interested in taking a trip to Fort Recovery this Autumn?

On 4 November 1791, the United States Army suffered one of their worst defeats in history near the present-day Indiana/Ohio border.  The infantry and militia under General Arthur St. Clair were conducting a punitive campaign against the Native Nations in the region, when those nations- led by Little Turtle and Blue Jacket- decided to bring the campaign to a premature conclusion.  70% of the U.S. force and support personnel were killed on site, many of them Revolutionary War veterans.  The overall casualty rate was more than 97%, among the worst in U.S. Army history.
 
General Anthony Wayne would later build Fort Recovery at the site of St. Clair's defeat.  The battle is largely forgotten, except among military historians.

The Fort Recovery museum is planning a battlefield walk on Sunday, 24 October 2021, to commemorate the 230th anniversary.  It is a two hour walk led by historians.  This might be an opportune time to visit, but we must register for the event, and no one has yet been able to tell me how to register.  If we have a group that would like to attend, I could let them know we're coming.  We could also pick another date and simply explore the area on our own.
