Sons of the American Revolution

Beginning October 2015, monthly luncheon meetings have been held at the Marina at Edison Ford (Pinchers) in Historic Downtown Fort Myers. Located at 2360 West 1st Street, off McGregor Blvd, adjacent to the Edison Ford Estates. Meetings are generally held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month, but with one or two Saturday meetings held each season.

We try to make our meetings interesting while advancing our historical, educational, and patriotic objectives.

Whether you are a member of another Chapter of NSSAR who is here seasonally or on vacation, or you are simply interested in learning more about the Sons of the American Revolution and the Caloosa Chapter, we would love to have you join us at a meeting.  While the majority of our members reside in Lee County, other parts of Florida and at least 15 other States are represented as well.

Gatherings begin at 11:30 a.m. followed by lunch and other Chapter activities.

Meetings provide an opportunity for Compatriots to join together over a meal and participate in programs sponsored by the Chapter. Often a guest speaker will present a topic of interest related to our Patriot ancestors and the Revolutionary Period, or to more contemporary issues including educational and patriotic activities in the community. Meetings also are a venue for presenting medals and awards to members and others in the community whose contributions support the mission of the Society and its patriotic, historical and educational objectives.
