The Indiana Society of the
Hello, my name is Cassie Carter. I am the new Indiana C.A.R. State President for the 2004 year. I have some big plans for Indiana C.A.R. but before I tell about them I will give you a little information about myself.
As a sophomore at Kokomo Christian School I have a very busy schedule filled with sports such as volleyball and basketball, 4-H projects like genealogy and cattle, spending time with friends and hanging out with my brother John and sister Kelly Ann. I have been in the Chief Peshewa C.A.R. Society, Howard County for eight years and have served on the state level for six years.
For my state project this year I want to get C.A.R. members involved. My project centers around a monument in Delphi. It is on the site of the first cabin in Carroll County belonging to Samuel Milroy, a Child of the American Revolution. Weeds now overrun the site of the cabin and the monument is not visible from the road. As the first phase of my project I would like to clear away the undergrowth from the area and even take out some of the small trees so that the monument can be seen from the road. I would also like to build a handrail going up the small hill to the monument to make it easier to get to the site. The second part of my project is to purchase a historical road marker that would tell about the site and of Samuel Milroy’s life and accomplishments. The marker will be placed on a road near the site.
To accomplish these goals I need much support. To raise funds for the monument I will be selling patriotic tote bags, flag and star pins, and voices for a beautiful eagle throw that will be given at next years C.A.R State Conference (You do not have to be present to win). To place an order for these items, please print the order form.
If you would like to make a donation to my project, you can send a check to:
Here are some pictures of me at the site of the monument. These pictures were taken in the early wintertime so you can imagine what the site looks like when the weeds are in full growth.
