Our Chapter has monthly meetings
except in July and August. We vary the meeting time and
places to accommodate the busy schedules of our members
and prospective members. Each regular meeting includes
the President General’s Message, officer and committee
reports, and a Historical, Patriotic, Educational, or
National Defense program.
Our Chapter will be
celebrating our 100th anniversary on June 5, 2013, at the Cascades Manor House
in Jackson. For more complete details, contact our Regent.
