The Tulip Grove Chapter United States Daughters of 1812 held their Nov. 5 meeting at the Jackson Country Club, with Mrs. Regina East, president, presiding. Aline Roberts gave the invocation because of the absence of Joy Bland. Joan Harmon led the patriotic exercises. Mrs. Harmon introduced the speaker, Billy King, from the Big Black Creek Historical Association Inc. He spoke about places around Jackson where the association is giving narrated, guided tours of historical landmarks. Tours are being given in eastern Haywood and western Madison Counties, including the communities of Woodland, Leighton, Denmark and Mercer. After King’s presentation, Colleen Cors, director of the Jackson Visitors and Convention Bureau, displayed a notebook with pictures of the historical sites for all to see the work being done at these sites. Everyone enjoyed hearing about these historical places. The flag minutes, given by Donna Cooley, stated that the U.S. flag should be placed in a church as a place of honor on the right of the podium. Treasurer Aline Roberts gave the financial report and asked the chapter to approve the amount of funds to be given by the chapter for national projects. Motion carried. Mrs. Roberts gave a report on October National Board of U.S.D. of 1812. The society is so pleased that our Memorial Library and Museum is almost complete after sitting empty for 14 years. Pictures were passed around for all to see the new improvements. Mrs. Roberts and Tennessee State President Bettie Gustafson attended this meeting. Registrar Terry Nelson welcomed Lorane Miller, who has completed her application papers to become a chapter member. Mrs. East announced that our next meeting would be a Christmas luncheon on Dec. 3 at the Jackson Country Club. Members are to bring gifts or donations for veterans and a wrapped gift costing between $5 and $10. Yearly reports will be completed at this meeting. The meeting adjourned, and everyone enjoyed a tasty meal.wcp 12-2-08
