The Carl Neiman Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution met on Dec. 8, in the basement of the Ava General Baptist Church.
The meeting was called to order by Regent Sandra Walker at 7 p.m. and opened with prayer by Chaplain Sherry Beasley. The Pledge of Allegiance and the American’s Creed were both recited.
The Chapter agreed to send a Christmas check to the Tamassee School. Chaplain Sherry reported that she visited Jo Peebles and talked to Rosalee Hamilton. All were glad to hear that they are both doing better. Cinita Brown was able to join the group again and all were very glad to have her back.
Sherry also received a thank you card from Laura Findley’s family. Prayers of the local group are still and always will be with her family. This was the Christmas meeting and they tried to make it special. They looked at the progress on the float entry for the Ava Christmas Parade. Terry Hoogendoorn, Sandra and Jim Walker, as well as Jim and Janet Ariciu are to be commended for all of the time and work they have put into the float. It is beautiful.
Some brought special mementos and shared their stories with our sisters. There were Christmas treats and hot apple cider. It was a very special time that was enjoyed by all.
The next meeting will be on Jan. 12, 2012. The Chapter would like to wish each and everyone of you a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year! God Bless You All!!
