The Colorado Society of the SAR saw its first meeting on July 4, 1896 in Denver, near present day 16th and California Streets. The Mt. Evans Chapter, covering the Denver metro area and Central Front Range of Colorado specifically, was chartered on July 27, 1985. Currently, the Chapter numbers approximately 120 living descendants of the Colonial Militiamen, Continental Line Soldiers and Patriots who founded the United States of America.
With an annual meeting in January, we also meet near April 19 to recognize Patriots Day, near September 17 to commemorate the Constitution and near December 15 to celebrate the Bill of Rights. Chapter programs are dedicated to the encouragement of patriotism, education of our youth and sustaining the vision of our Patriot ancestors. Recognizing the importance of our area youth, we support and maintain an active educational role in Front Range Schools through the Patriot Chest program, while joining COSSAR efforts to honor outstanding ROTC Cadets, JROTC Cadets and Eagle Scouts. We encourage both Adult, as well as Youth Registrations for male family members under the age of 18.
Members of the Chapter were instrumental in originating the idea and lobbying the Colorado Legislature to recognize April 19 as a perpetual Patriots Day. This day coincides with the attack on Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775 and the firing of the “Shot heard ‘round the world” at Concord Bridge.
