The Jacob Flournoy Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution held their April meeting at the College Street Community Center.
Lucy Andrews and Sue Matheny served as hostesses during the social time. The food table was covered with an antique cloth, decorated with Rose of Sharon print on an off-white background. The centerpiece was a bouquet of mixed jonquils in a crystal vase. It was flanked on either side with tall, tapered green candles in crystal holders.
Coffee, in addition to several assorted pastries and cheeses, were served.
Elaine Allen filled in for regent Sallie Ferguson, who was absent due to illness.
The Pledge to the U.S. Flag was led by Mary Harris. Ramona Moon led the “National Anthem.” Agnes Sublette filled in for the chaplain.
Lora James, serving as program leader, introduced guest speakers, Dr. and Mrs. Phillip Winkler.

During the business meeting, Ms. Harris gave a report on women’s issues. Elaine Allen gave the treasurer’s report and Ms. Sublette gave the Native American Report. Three new members were voted on.
Ms. James gave a report on the upcoming luncheon May 13 at 11 a.m. at the Harvey Vick Community Room in South Fulton City Hall. The special guest speaker will be Kentucky state regent Sharon M. Withers. Other special guests will be in attendance, with a special recognition of them.
