Welcome, to the website of
the Bernardo de Gálvez Chapter #1 for 2018.
We are glad you found us.
If you have an ancestor who contributed to the War of American Independance
we invite you to attend our meeting
April 21st. See details below!
Our website serves 2 purposes:
First, we are the official on-line informational source for members of the Galveston, Texas area Chapter of SAR. Visitors can access information about local SAR activities and meetings, contact other members, and keep up to date on all chapter events.
Second, in keeping with the goals and obectives set out by the National Society, this web site is designed "to perpetuate the memory of those who, by their services or sacrifices during the war of the American Revolution, achieved the Independence of the American People."
What is the SAR Organization about?
The SAR is an historical, educational, and patriotic non-profit, United States 501(c)3, corporation that seeks to maintain and extend:
- the institutions of American freedom
- an appreciation for true patriotism
- a respect for our national symbols
- the value of American citizenship
- the unifying force of e pluribus unum that has created, from the people of many nations, one nation and one people.
We do this by perpetuating the stories of patriotism, courage, sacrifice, tragedy, and triumph of the men who achieved the independence of the American people in the belief that these stories are universal ones of man's eternal struggle against tyranny, relevant to all time, and will inspire and strengthen each succeeding generation as it too is called upon to defend our freedoms on the battlefield and in our public institutions.
The Bernardo de Galvez Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution meets the third Saturday of every month, except December, corresponding to the anniversary of our founding in 1896. Guests are welcome. Please join us.
The April membership meeting will be at Landry's Seafood House located at 5310 Seawall Blvd. Galveston, TX 77551. We meet at noon. From the Mainland, take Broadway to 53rd St, turning right, just before the McDonalds, proceeding to the Seawall where you take a right for a short distance. The parking lot is between the Seafood House and the Hotel.
Please contact Vice President
or 713-408-2679 if you plan on attending, or for more information.
