The Tulip Grove Chapter, United States Daughters of 1812, held their Christmas meeting Dec. 3 at the Jackson Country Club. President Regina East presided. Mrs. East made the room festive by decorating the tables with red poinsettias and small Christmas ornaments. State Flag Chairman Donna Cooley’s flag fact was about “The Meaning in the Folding of the USA Flag.” Do you know what each stripe means in the folding of the flag? The national defense message was a discussion about “How will President-elect Barack Obama protect our nation from being attacked by foreign countries?” Does he have the expertise in knowing what to do at the right moment? What person will he chose for this most important position? Terry Nelson spoke on making “Stitches of Love” lap rugs and hanging bags for wheelchair patients at the Memphis Veteran Hospital. A discussion was held about the opening, which will be sometime in December, of a facility in Jackson for daily veteran patients. Members should inquire and assist in any way to help the patients. Recording Secretary Darlene Gingerich read the minutes, which were approved. Treasurer Aline Roberts gave the financial report. Registrar Terry Nelson reported we have a total of 25 members this includes one FADD and four juniors. Donna Cooley held a discussion about marking a grave in the Paris Landing area. The chapter decided this event would to be held in February or March of 2009. Mrs. East asked each chapter chairman to discuss their national chairman letter so reports would be ready to mail to the Tennessee state president by Jan. 15. Next, Mrs. East said that everyone had to answer a question about songs from the 40s and 50s to receive a gift that each member brought. It was played like “Dirty Santa,” and everyone had a delightful time. Mrs. East then treated everyone to a delicious meal. Everyone sang Christmas songs and were wished a merry Christmas. Our next chapter meeting will be held Feb. 4, 2009, at the Jackson Country Club. wcp 12-23-08
