Mary Bush Society ends busy summer, looks ahead to fall

The Mary Bush Society Children of the American Revolution (CAR) of Greenwich spent its summer learning about national project and programs.

The CAR national project this year is to raise funds for the Battle of Saratoga Historic Park and their summer meeting was held at the Bruce Museum, leading to a full afternoon of fun and educational programs and covered several topics including the Battle of Saratoga and how it was a turning point in the Revolutionary War, endangered species of Fairfield County, history and customs of the Hudson Valley Native American tribes, the War of 1812 and also about how messages were sent secretly during the Revolution.

The Mary Bush Society has a busy year leading the pledge at Town Hall for the Independence Day ceremony, collecting food items and school clothes for Neighbor to Neighbor and donating new backpacks to Kids in Crisis for back to school. But that’s just the beginning, not the end. The students have many exciting activities on tap for the upcoming year including pizza parties, meeting with the Greenwich Board of Selectmen to declare Constitution Week, running a Girl Scout colonial badge program, serving hot cider and docenting at the Putnam Cottage Christmas Open House, sponsoring the town Wreaths Across America Ceremony, placing flags at Greenwich’s Revolutionary soldier graves for Veteran’s Day and many more service-centered activities.
