The first order of business is to announce that “This Saturday’s, January 20, 2024 meeting of the South Jersey Chapter of the SAR has been cancelled due to potential serious weather conditions.”
Sorry for the late notice; however, with the concurrence of several SJCSAR Board members, I have decided not to bring out our membership into inclement weather, especially since a few members live a distance from our meeting place in West Deptford. The South Jersey Chapter membership encompasses Salem, Cumberland, Gloucester, Camden, and Burlington counties.
Our next scheduled meeting is on March 16 at the West Deptford Library. I am planning on no snow or inclement weather for that date.
I wanted to allow as many members as possible to attend our first meeting of the year, especially as it is getting closer and closer to 2026. 2026, of course, is the 250th Anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. And since we are Sons of the American Revolution, we should be planning, along with the rest of the Country, for exceptional 2026 activities, memories, and events to celebrate during 2026 and beyond.
I will be emailing you a few times, before this first March 16 meeting, to provide some materials for our planning at that meeting.
If you have any questions or ideas about our Chapter’s direction(s), please let me know.
