CAR Members Attend Florida Packet Party

Children of the American Revolution societies from around the state attended the annual packet party for the Florida State Society Children of the American Revolution to discuss this year’s theme, “Rolling with the Brave.”

The event was hosted by the Fifer George Weissenfels Society, whose own Kaitlin Matyskiel is the Florida state president of the Children of the American Revolution. She introduced to the group her state project, which is to raise money to support the 33rd National Veterans Wheelchair Games, which will be held in Tampa in 2013. Also in attendance were Senior State Society President Lindsey Cook Brock and his wife, Billie Sheckler Brock.

Members of the various societies will volunteer their time as well as raise funds to contribute to the event. They enjoyed the presentation and acted in skits that highlighted other groups and topics the societies support, including mountain schools, conservation efforts and endangered species.
