|DAR welcomes guest speaker|
Rita Lynn Jackson of the Iberville Parish chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution was the guest speaker for Chief Tusquahoma chapter, LSDAR at their recent meeting at Logan's in West Monroe.
Jackson won first place with her essay at Continental Congress in Washington, D.C. last summer.
The presentation was about her relationship with family member Courtland Landreaux, now deceased, who was a longtime member of Chief Tusquahoma and former Ouachita Parish librarian.
Jackson became acquainted with Landreaux while doing the genealogy of their family. Because Landreaux kept meticulous records, Jackson was able to find the documents that she needed.
A lifelong friendship was the result, with Jackson making many trips to West Monroe to visit with her relative.
There were many years' difference between the two, and Landreaux gave a portrait of herself and a collection of DAR American Women coins from 1975 to Jackson.
The George Washington luncheon followed with arrangements of silk flowers in red, white and blue on the tables.
A brief review of Washington's last walk from his quarters to the inauguration of John Adams was presented by Regent Gwen Clark. He then returned to his Mount Vernon estate to live out the rest of his life.
Clark presided over the opening ritual with Lillian Dunlap giving the President General's report.
Jo Bennett read the National Defense Report, and the Constitution and Indian moments were given.
New member Patrice Lewis was installed by chaplain Barbara Gewin.
Fannie Oliver was honored for having reached her 90th birthday with a bouquet of flowers, presented by Toni Rodgers. Rodgers also presented a serving tray in the shape of a pineapple, a DAR symbol, to speaker Rita Lynn Jackson.
Others attending were guests Marie Doughty, Ann Richards, Debbie Cannon and Gail Collins.
Members attending were Billie Alderman, Delores Gewin, Gladys Brownlee, Dottie Glover and Gay Hall.
