Events & RSVPs


The WRSSAR holds regular events throughout the year. These events are open to members, their families, friends and the community at large. We endeavor to make these events both fun and educational. We look forward to seeing you there. If you have ideas for future events, please do send them to us: wrssar.communications@gmail.com

  • RSVPs are required for all events. We accept online payments at the time of your reservation or you can pay at the door (cash, check or credit card). While we would prefer non-members to pay in advance, that is not a requirement.
  • Cancellations must be made in writing or by phone, at least, 72 hours ahead of time.

Online RSVP Service

You can RSVP (no payment required) or Pre-Pay for any event by clicking the appropriate box below. Feel free to contact us with questions.

Please note: Due to venue policies, if you RSVP and do not pre-pay, but then fail to attend the event, we will need you to reimburse us the full cost of your ticket since the venue will charge us for your meal whether you attend or not.

Down-scaled annual George Washington’s Birthday Fellowship @ Shaker Heights Country Club
Feb 13 @ 11:45 am – 1:30 pm

Compatriots, although the COVID-19 vaccine is out and the end of the pandemic is hopefully near, the Western Reserve Society of the Sons of the American Revolution has made the difficult decision to cancel  this year’s George Washington Birthday Lunch celebration at the Shaker Heights Country Club (scheduled for Feb 13th).  We do plan to return to the Country Club for a Veterans Day lunch on Saturday, November 6th, with a full Color Guard and related program, so save the date for that!  (other events may be held before that as circumstances allow, be it live and/or by virtual attendance).

However, we are offering a few Compatriot seats (10 maximum) for a “Fellowship” lunch Noon Sat Feb 13th at the SHCC (no formal program other perhaps a few remarks on the relevance of the SAR in today’s times). If interested/willing to attend (and perhaps add a voice to such a conversation), please reply to this email by Jan 24th and whether you are requesting one or two seats. Reservations will be honored on a “first come first serve” basis.

Yours in patriotism,  William Ross  WRSSAR President 2021

The $35 is for the regular wonderful luncheon of petit filet of beef, vegetable, starch, rolls/butter, salad and cherry pie a la mode.  Valet service is free or park your own car.  Contact us if you have any questions.  We will be requiring RSVPs since we must guarantee a certain number of meals.

Covid protocols will be in effect as appropriate – social distancing/masks.

(VIRTUAL ONLY) Annual student Oration, Poster and Brochure Contest
Apr 14 @ 12:00 pm – 12:00 pm

The WRSSAR has be blessed with an excellent record of student accomplishment over the decades.  Our local High School Oration Winner has won locally, at the State and at National SAR TWICE in the past decade.  THis year, due to covid, our oration will be held virtually.  At this time, we do not know if members will be able to view the contest or when we can show the speeches – due to the need for privacy since our winner must be anonymous at the State and National events.

We are also judging our Elementary School poster contest and Middle School brochure contests at the same time.  These items will be collected at the start of April.

Please contact us with any questions.

Annual Night Out With the Indians VS Boston Red Sox @ Progressive Field
Aug 27 @ 7:00 pm – 10:30 pm

Join us for our annual Night Our with the Cleveland Indians versus Boston Red Sox at Progressive Field.

We have reserved 16 CLUB SEATS around the 1st base area – rows R and S – which means a bit higher up in the club area which also means fewer steps to go down and up every time you want drinks or food.

Club seats include all you can eat FOOD and free non-alcoholic drinks.  The schedule has not been finalized but they expect Friday night to also be a Fireworks night.

We will start selling tickets in February 2021 online.  We are only collecting exactly what the Indians are charging per ticket which is $106.  (parking not included).  Again, this is $106 per ticket but includes club seating, club amenities and all you can eat food/drink.

We only have 16 tickets and they will be sold on a 1st come/1st served basis.  Please contact us with questions ASAP.  The Indians do not expect the game to be cancelled but there may be a mask requirement.  They will not be requiring a vaccination to attend but the Board of the SAR has informally suggested that all SAR members wishing to attend SAR events get vaccinated for their own safety.

Again, contact us with questions or buy your tickets on our website in the events area as soon as they are available – sometime in February.
