State Recognitions - Chapter
Outstanding Chapter in the State of Texas
Awarded to Chapters that excelled in all programs, activities, and outreach to non-SAR institutions and groups as reflected in the 12 sections of the Chapter Annual Report. The award is given to Chapters in four categories for their participation in the majority of programs contained in the Annual Report. These include meetings and programs, Media relations for articles, radio and TV coverage, publication of a Chapter Newsletter and operating a chapter web site, observing patriotic holidays, dedication of graves, conducting flag programs, awarding medals and certificates to SAR, DAR, and CAR members and recognizing outstanding non-SAR people who support the goals of the SAR. Monetary contributions to the Patriots Fund, National Society projects, and the C.A.R. are important as well as the participation in Youth Programs. Also included is work to maintain a viable membership base - retaining members. Bringing in C.A.R. members aging out into SAR is essential as is the participation in state meetings. Chapters are encouraged to establish and maintain a Color Guard with appropriate activities in parades, schools, and flag programs. There are Veteran activities and finally participation and recognition of the C.A.R. and its members at chapter meetings and attending TSCAR events.
The bottom line is to promote the ideals of the Sons of the American Revolution.
This was formerly the Louis J. Rumaggi Trophy and is given to a chapter that develops an exceptional program to recognize patriotic activities of the youth of the state, supports institutions and adults that promote patriotic education, recognizes observance of national holidays, and recognizes outstanding citizenship during the past year.
