|Daughters meet at country club|
Two members tell of trip to Chalmette
The Governor William C.C. Claiborne Chapter, United States Daughters of 1812, met Saturday, Jan. 10, at Bayou DeSiard Country Club for its annual winter meeting.
The group selects a date in early January to commemorate the anniversary of the Battle of New Orleans, which occurred January 8, 1815.
Pat Lary was hostess for the meeting and arranged colorful and striking decorations for the luncheon table, appropriate for the occasion.
Ann Lane, president of the Society, called the meeting to order. Pat Lary, Frances Jakes and Dot Haddad led the chapter ritual, with members participating.
Chapter business was conducted, including officers' reports, membership proposals, etc.
Ann Lane and Frances Jakes, told of their trip to New Orleans two days earlier to attend the Chalmette Chapter meeting of USD1812 and the wreath-laying ceremony at Jackson Square in New Orleans.
The Chalmette area, just outside of New Orleans, was where the Battle of New Orleans actually occurred, when the Americans defeated the British in a decisive battle and Andrew Jackson became the "one great hero of the War of 1812."
Jackson Square, in the historic part of New Orleans, has the famed statue of Andrew Jackson on his horse and is where traditional ceremonies in his memory are held.
The Jan. 10 program at the local Society's meeting in Monroe was a report by Gene Stack on Andrew Jackson's life. She divided it into two parts, first giving events of his life(1767-1845) and then a brief review of a great new book about Jacksonó"American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House" by Jon Meacham.
Meacham's book centered specifically around the White House years, and Mrs. Stack's review of the earlier and later events of Jackson's life helped complete the picture of this outstanding man's years.
Members present for the Jan. 10 luncheon meeting were Ann Lane, Luella Snyder, Pat Lary, Frances Jakes, Carolyn Brown, Dot Haddad, Gene Stack, and Kay Katz.
