The Huron Valley Chapter was founded in 2008 when two members of the Oaks Chapter, David and John Critchett, were looking for a chapter closer to the Ann Arbor area. For the first few years, the chapter met at a retirement center in Ann Arbor on Saturday mornings. We began the tradition (which continues today) of having a holiday gathering for brunch or dinner at a local restaurant. The chapter currently has five regular meetings per year on the third Saturday of September, November, January, March, and May. We meet at the Plymouth Library at 10:00am in downtown Plymouth, Michigan.

Over the past several years, we have had a variety of engaging speakers and programs. Speakers have included historians, local authors, and re-enactors. The chapter participates in the Wreaths Across America program, and will have a paving stone at the WWII Memorial in Royal Oak, Michigan. We hosted our first grave rededication for Benjamin Woodruff and Josiah Cutler in May of 2016 at the Forest Hill Cemetery in Ann Arbor. The chapter currently has approximately 50 members.

We are a very friendly, cohesive group, and we welcome all SAR members who are interested in joining our chapter.
