The Clarendon Chapter, Colonial Dames XVII Century recently held their September meeting at the Through the Grapevine Restaurant in Murfreesboro. Chapter President Lynda Logan presided at the meeting. The invocation was given by Maymee Cantrell, acting chaplain. A motion was made by Carolyn Martin to dispense with the opening rituals. The May meeting minutes were approved by a committee thus not read. Treasurer Blanche Pearson gave the financial report and was approved. Registrar Charlene Johnson reported she was working on several new applications. Under new business, a nominating committee was elected to obtain new officers for 2009-11. Appointed were Janie York, Charlene Johnson and Maymee Cantrell. The chapter approved the marking of the grave of honorary state president, Mrs. James B. Givens, who served the Tennessee Society from 1960-63 and is from Clarendon Chapter. The marking will take place Oct. 25 at the Mount Hope Cemetery in Franklin. A luncheon will follow after the service. The chapter will mark the Jerusalem Cumberland Presbyterian Church on Nov. 22 in Mount Juliet. A vote was taken to mark the LaGuardo Cumberland Presbyterian Church at a later date. A Christmas basket for the women veterans was planned and members are to submit items. The chapter will also give a contribution to the Fisher House for veteran families that is located in Middle Tennessee. Lap bibs for veterans are due to Lynda in November. Membership continues to be our main focus. If you know of someone who wishes to become a member, please invite them to attend our meetings. Plans were made to host our 53rd Tennessee State Conference at the Manchester Conference Center in Manchester on March 5, 2009. The theme chosen was “Wearing of the Green.” A gift for the president general, Mrs. Emile J. Gex, of Picayune, Miss., was graciously donated by Maymee Cantrell. All details were discussed and plans made for the upcoming event. A delicious luncheon was enjoyed by all in attendance.wcp 10-21-08
