The Pine Mountain Chapter of Daughters of American Revolution (DAR) met at Hobo’s Diner for their March meeting. The following members were present: Regent Shirley Whitaker, Stella Elam, Nina Craft, Marsha Banks, Rebecca Reynolds, Sally Caudill, Kaye Moore, Linda Lucas, Virginia Brown, Merlene Day and Mahala Frazier. We were pleased to have Linda Jarrett as our guest.
We were unable to meet in February because of the snow, so we honored Nina Craft as our Valentine Sweetheart for 2010 with a dozen roses and a complimentary poem written by our talented poet, Ruby Caudill.
Mahala Frazier gave an interesting program on famous women of history taken mostly from the book Ladies of Liberty
written by Cokie Roberts.
We were blessed with several nights of revival at the Little Cowan Primitive Baptist Church. The preachers were Bernice Sybert and Oscar Irvin from Kingsport, and our pastors John Banks and Woodrow Fields. We had a good crowd and wonderful preaching each night. We appreciate everyone who came to be with us.
Kathy LaMonte called from Mississippi to tell us that her sister, Anne Carpenter, has a new granddaughter. Ainsley McGinty was born Sunday night to Rebecca and Chad. Her great-grandparents were George and Ruth Sigrest, and great-great-grandparents were Cassell and Beulah Caudill.
Mae Boggs and her daughter Bokey went to Shelbyville to visit her daughters, Becky and Sonja, and her son, Kelly Boggs. They had a nice visit and got to see some of the greatgrandchildren. Mae, Kelly, and Kelly’s granddaughter spent the night with Becky, and Bokey stayed with her sister, Sonja. They are all doing well. Mae plans to go back soon to spend more time with them.
Happy birthday this month to Steve and Nancy Sutphin and their daughters, Amy and Lauren of San Diego, Calif. Steve is Yvonne Brown Sutphin’s son.
