The Carl Neiman Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution met on April 14, at 7 p.m., in the Student Ministries Building of the Ava General Baptist Church.
The meeting was called to order by Regent Sandra Walker. Members then recited the Pledge of Allegiance to the United States and the American’s Creed. Prayer was led by Chaplain Sherry Beasley. There were nine members and three guests in attendance.
The program was given by Leila Cohoon from Lake Lotawana, Mo. Leila gave a wonderful program on the women’s suffrage movement. The name of the program was “Votes for Women.”
Members learned a lot of wonderful information on the history of women’s suffrage not only in the United States, but also in Europe. Her collection of antique cards is priceless.
Leila also is the founder of the largest hair museum in the world. Her museum has been highlighted in many national television programs.
The meeting was adjourned at 9:02 p.m. by the regent and was closed with prayer by Chaplain Beasley. The May meeting will be held on May 12, at the regular meeting place.
Memorial services for Margie Greenwell and Norma Lambert will be given by Chapter members. Everyone is asked to bring a finger food. This will be the last meeting until September. Anyone that would like to attend is more than welcome.
Have a wonderful Easter and God bless you all!
