Martin Warren Chapter MOSSAR

Bruce McNeel, of Knob Noster, received the Sons of the American Revolution Gold Medal and Certificate in recognition of his participation in the 250th anniversary of the American Revolution recognition program.

This SAR recognition program is designed to encourage and recognize the compatriots, chapters, and societies that participate in local, state, national, and international events that publicly educate, recognize, honor, and celebrate the events and heroes of the period surrounding the American Revolution. Participation involves the planning and execution of these events, as well as attendance. The medal covers any event celebrating and promoting the 250th anniversary of the American Revolution.

McNeel also serves the Martin Warren Chapter as Historian, one of several offices that McNeel has served during the past 15 years.

The Martin Warren Chapter meets at 10:30 a.m. at the RISE Café in Warrensburg on the third Saturday of the month, except in December on the second Saturday. The Chapter does not meet in February, July, and August. Those interested in becoming a member of the NSSAR may contact Chapter Genealogist Mark Parks at mark.e.parks@gmail.com.
