Welcome to the Sacramento Chapter

Meeting Notice — Friday, September 20, 2019

Sept 20, 2019
6 pm Socialize
7 pm Meeting


12409 Folsom Blvd.
Rancho Cordova


Each year, the California Society SAR sponsors two California teachers to attend workshops in Valley Forge, focused on the Revolutionary War. This year, our chapter was fortunate to have two teachers selected for this program.

Sacramento area teachers, Melissa Wolking from Oak Chan Elementary School in Folsom and Scott Steffens from St. Patrickís Academy in Sacramento were selected this year, and they have recently returned from these Freedoms Foundation Valley Forge Workshops. They have both agreed to speak at our September dinner meeting to share their experiences and impressions of this program with us. This promises to be a very interesting and exciting meeting, so donít miss it.

Melissa Wolking has taught in the Folsom Cordova Unified School District since 2004. While she has taught second, fourth, and fifth grade, the latter is by far her favorite. She loves the fifth grade social studies curriculum and all things related to the American Revolution. Sharing the events related to our country's beginning is the highlight of her instructional year. She has welcomed the Sons (and Daughters) of the American Revolution into her classroom for six years and is looking forward to a seventh.

Scott Steffens is a history teacher at St. Patrick's Academy in Sacramento. His passion and insatiable curiosity of history began when he was ten year old when he first stumbled upon his father's book on the ancient Roman city of Pompeii. Since then his interests have expanded into US history from the Revolution to the Second World War, medieval history, biblical archaeology, early Christian history, and late antiquity. He is also a self-proclaimed history buff and can be found re-enacting famous battles of the American civil war at various events around northern California.

Who We Are
The Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) are direct descendants of those patriots that achieved the independence of the American people. The objectives of our organization are intended to perpetuate a more profound reverence for the principles of the government founded by our forefathers.
The Purpose of Our Society
The SAR is a historical, educational, and patriotic United States 501(c)3 non-profit organization that seeks to maintain and extend:
  • the institutions of American freedom
  • an appreciation for true patriotism
  • a respect for our national symbols
  • the value of American citizenship
  • the unifying force of e pluribus unum that has created, from the people of many nations, one nation and one people.
We do this by perpetuating the stories of patriotism, courage, sacrifice, tragedy, and triumph of the men who achieved the independence of the American people in the belief that these stories are universal ones of man's eternal struggle against tyranny, relevant to all time, and will inspire and strengthen each succeeding generation as it too is called upon to defend our freedoms on the battlefield and in our public institutions.

Preserve the memory of those whose service and sacrifice during the American Revolution secured independence for the American people.
  • Unite and promote fellowship among their descendants.
  • Inspire them and the Community with a more profound reverence for the principles of the government founded by our forefathers.
  • Encourage historical research in relation to the American Revolution.
  • Maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom, an appreciation for true patriotism, a respect for our national symbols, and the value of American citizenship.
  • Promote the purposes expressed in the preamble of the Constitution.
