Members of the Jacob Flournoy Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution met recently at the Carr Street Community Center in Fulton for their February meeting.
During the social time, Ramona Moon and Elaine Allen served as hostesses.
A Valentine theme was used, with a red tablecloth and accessories covering the food table. It was centered with a bouquet of fresh early spring flowers from Mrs. Moon’s garden. An assortment of cupcakes, a fruit plate, nuts and punch were served.
The regular meeting was opened with the DAR Ritual. Mrs. Moon served as program leader and led the Pledge of Allegiance and the national anthem. She introduced guest speaker Tara Rudolph-Dowdy.
Mrs. Rudolph-Dowdy is a graduate of the University of Tennessee at Martin and earned a bachelor of science degree in natural resource management. She works for Reelfoot National Wildlife Management as a park ranger-educational coordinator. Among her jobs are banding waterfowl, conducting eagle tours and visiting schools to talk about Reelfoot Lake wildlife and what the agency does to help the birds and wildlife.
She brought an assortment of animal pelts, bones, turtle shells and mounted ducks for display. Following the talk, the group was able to ask questions and get a closer look at the display. She frequently presents programs.
The next DAR meeting will be a workshop March 10 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Graves County Library in Mayfield, Ky.
