Membership in the Auxiliary
Membership in the NLASAR/LAPASSAR shall be open to all women who wish to support SAR and its mission.
A woman may join the NLASAR/LAPASSAR by completion of the membership form and payment of dues. She shall receive all the rights and privileges of the NLSAR and will be eligible to hold office (Revised By-laws of the NLASAR/LAPASSAR).
Our mission is to support and assist the Pennsylvania and National Societies in promoting patriotism and teaching and preserving American history for future generations.
At present, the Pennsylvania Ladies Auxiliary (LAPASSAR) has thirty-seven members, and continues to grow. Our members reside in counties all over the state, our meetings and programs are held four times a year and take place while Compatriots meet. The Auxiliary is a great way for us to connect, support and enjoy each other while we support the Pennsylvania and National Societies in their objectives and activities. As part of that support, we hold fund raising events to assist with these objectives.
If interested in joining, please send the application and dues payment to Diana Watson. The link for the application in PDF or Word format is below.
Dues are $10.00 annually and include membership not only in the Pennsylvania Society Ladies Auxiliary (LAPASSAR) but also in the National Ladies Auxiliary Sons of the American Revolution (NLASAR).
We ladies have a great time together, and we hope that you will want to join us, especially as PASSAR hosts the SAR 2024 Congress in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
