glad to hear that you are not yet totally throwing in the towel yet. I should inform you that partly because of the response your children received at your unit function last year, Richard Osborne the Region 4 President was able to generate interest in and get unanimous approval for a motion at this years IBT to recognize children (and grandchilderen) of members as official members of the club. They will now be issued badges and no longer should any of them be told that they are not members of the club. It is a small step, but a positive one. You can take pride that you helped bring this important issue to the attention of Club Leadership.
Also, while they may not be close enough to you, I have learned that the Cincinnati unit holds a "Youth Rally" each year, getting about 15-20 children to attend (mostly but not all are grandchildren). Even if you cannot consider joining this unit, their Youth Rally might be something to check out next year.
