Kettle Creek Chapter, National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution, held its regular meeting Saturday, September 9, at the Episcopal Church Parish House.

Vice-president Anna Gunter led the opening rituals with assistance from Fran Thaxton, chaplain.

Following the luncheon, Regent Amanda Aycock, led the business meeting that included topics determining the future goals of the chapter. Discussion revolved around the distribution of the chapter’s resources and the continuing support of the State and National NSDAR philanthropies.

Other topics included the attendance of Mrs. Aycock and Ginny Broome at the Georgia DAR workshop in Macon on August 19 and amendments made to the chapter bylaws due to changes to the NSDAR organization’s by-laws.

Other reports were given by Mrs. Broome, treasurer; Linda Chesnut, registrar; Peggy Jones, recording secretary, and Mrs. Thaxton, chaplain.

Mrs. Aycock announced Constitution Week is September 17-23 and gave handouts concerning this observance. DAR requested that Congress establish this week back in 1955. The resolution was adopted by Congress and was signed into law by President Dwight Eisenhower on August 2, 1956. The purpose of Constitution Week is to commemorate America’s most important document.

Attending the meeting were Nina Albea, Amanda Aycock, Patsy Bailey, Ginny Broome, Jane Burton, Linda Chesnut, Tody Derrick, Anna Gunter, Carol Harris, Peggy Jones, Anne Pinson, Joanne Pollock, Nancy Sisson, Fran Thaxton, and guests, Lou Harris and Thad Broome.
