OHSSAR Ladies Auxiliary

The Ladies Auxiliary of the Sons of the American Revolution was founded in California in 1984.  On October 6, 1989, the Ohio Ladies Auxiliary was chartered with 12 founding members.  In 2003 The National Ladies Auxiliary of the Sons of the American Revolution became a subordinate of the NSSAR with State organizations in California, Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Massachusetts, Ohio, and a group of members at large who lived in States without a Ladies Auxiliary.

Special Projects

Each year the OHSSAR Ladies Auxiliary undertakes special fund-raising projects that vary according to the interests and capabilities of the membership.

For the past several years, the Auxiliary has tapped into the expertise of one of its members to produce unique, heirloom-quality bed-size quilts that are raffled off by OHSSAR Ladies Auxiliary.

The quilt in the photo, left, was created and raffled during Troy Bailey’s presidential term, 2021-2022

Proceeds from these special-project fund-raisers make possible the cash awards from the LAOHSSAR to winners of the many youth contests and programs sponsored by the Ohio Society Sons of the American Revolution (OHSSAR). In addition, quit-raffle proceeds go to support the annual project chosen by the president of the Ohio Society, Children of the American Revolution (OSCAR).

In 2022, proceeds from quilt raffles made possible the Auxiliary’s participation in the one-time donation to the SAR Historical Museum of a sampler produced by a seven-year-old girl who was living in Boston in 1795
