On June 14, 2019, the Sons of the Revolution in the State of New York, Inc. accepted the NSDCW National Historic Preservation Award shortly before setting out on the annual Flag Day Parade which traverses from City Hall Park to Fraunces Tavern.  National Chairman Sonia Mallar had announced the award at the 2019 NSDCW Assembly in Washington, D.C., and recognized the Sons for their preservation of 300-year old Fraunces Tavern in Lower Manhattan.  The Sons received a certificate and check for $500.  See Photo under the Gallery Tab.

Posted a New Letter for Members

May 2018 National Defense Letter

Dear Members:

By direction of the NSDCW National Council, it is my sad duty to inform you that the decision has been made to cancel our April Annual Assembly with regret, the safety of our members being our highest priority.  Please share this information with the members in your state.  A copy of this announcement will be posted on the DCW member's site under "news." 


Checks for registration and for the Annual Assembly luncheon that were sent to Adele Bowyer have not been cashed.  Rather than risk those checks being lost in return mail, they will be shredded. 


Reservations for Annual Assembly 2021 at the Army and Navy Club are already in place with thanks to our National Hospitality Chairman.  Dates for that Assembly can be found on the calendar on our members' website. 


Keep in mind that the October Board meeting will be held in conjunction with the meetings of the National Society Daughters of the American Colonists at the Holiday Inn University in Charlottesville, VA tentatively scheduled for October 10 & 11. All members are welcome. 


More information will follow as details are finalized.


Best Regards,

Alice Ellingsberg, National President
