Members are cordially invited to spend an evening with the Marquis de Lafayette
Who: Young Lafayette will be portrayed by Ben Goldman. Lafayette was a skilled soldier, an impassioned speaker, an influential motivator, a committed diplomat, and a Mason. Ben’s resemblance to Lafayette, his excellent French vocabulary and accent, as well as his quick mind all combine for a dramatic, authentic portrayal of the passionate patriot.
Where: The Chapel at Old Main, Washington & Jefferson College, Washington, PA
When: Friday, March 31, 2023, starting at 6:30 p.m.
National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (NSSAR or SAR) was founded in 1889 and is headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky.
SAR is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and promoting education to our future generations. SAR members volunteer untold hours of service each year in their local communities. SAR is very active in supporting active-duty military personnel and assisting veterans as well. We proudly assist classrooms with living history interpreters, lesson planning materials and reenactment events for school-aged youth to attend.
