The St. Philip’s Parish Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Colonists, held its April meeting at Kaye Stephens’ Pond House in Adrian. The guest speaker was Mrs. Karen Smith Griffin, Regent of the Georgia State Society. Mrs. Griffin gave the thirteen members present an overview of her forays into Georgia as Regent through a video presentation she prepared. She also detailed her administration’s two projects — a digital library to promote patriotism and “Connecting with Cousins” to increase membership in the Society.
Mrs. Kay Clark, Regent of St. Philip’s Parish, presented State Regent Griffin with a basket of Bulloch County produce and a bouquet of flowers in the organization’s colors. A cash donation was also made to help with their Regent’s Project.
During the meeting, Mrs. Jane Durden of Swainsboro and Honorary Regent Thelma Kilpatrick of Statesboro gave reports on several committees. Mrs. Jerry Anne Singletary, Chapter Chaplain, gave the invocation and blessing.
The hostesses for the meeting were Mrs Kaye Stephens, Mrs Connie Page, Mrs Ann Lawson, Mrs Barbara Stokes, Mrs Glynda Sasser and Mrs Judy Womack. A beautiful salad lunch was served with a special dessert baked by Mrs. Page’s Swainsboro husband Burley.
