MARKING OF LEWIS/LYLE HOUSE IN INDIAN MOUND
The Chapter marked the Lewis/Lyle House in Indian Mound, TN on Saturday, May 14th, a beautiful day though with a somewhat cool wind which blew most of the time. Nearly 40 people were present including the president of the Stewart Co. Historical Society and two guests who were staying at the house for the weekend. Homeowner Mandy Williams had set up a beautiful table full of excellent food and following the ceremony we all spread out among the rooms to enjoy it. Some people toured the house and some were interested in the family cemetery at the back of the house, but all were impressed with the beauty and the history of the place and with the Southern hospitality of Mandy and her friends who helped her in getting everything ready for us.

meetings at Tom's Pizza & Steak
Paris, Tennessee, 11:00 a.m on 3rd Wednesday of:
On September 21 we had our first meeting with our "new" officers. After our ritual National Defense Chairman Geraldine Sykes presented a message about "the new Cold War" focused on the Strategic Defense Command Center in Oklahoma which was featured on a 60 Miniutes television show. She told some of how they have to be ready for any kind of attack, including nuclear, and that once an alert has been activated, the President has only 7 minutes to decide whether to launch or hold a nuclear retaliation.
Following the National Defense message and the minutes and treasurer's reports, we proceeded to our annual auction [see pictures below] which raises money to support our scholarship for a Henry County High School student. Due to some serious bidding wars over items such as Pat's delicious pecan pies and Frances' coconut cake, the auction raised over $700!
Following the auction, our business meeting included decisions about picking names for Christmas gifts for the Humboldt Veterans home and the decision to donate a copy of the new Tennessee Society Roster of Ancestors book to the Henry County Genealogy Library. Also "member-in-waiting" Susan Pemberton asked if we would help host a special Veterans Day event at the Veterans Memorial Hall at the Henry Co Genealogy Library on Nov. 11 at 2:00; the vote for our participation was unanimous.
Following the business meeting, Susan then presented the program Colonial Women taken from Colonial Dames Program #35. She presented information - much of it not well known - about three colonial women: Abigail Adams, Margaret Brent, and Eliza Pinckney. All strong women who held their own in a man's world.
