Our chapter is over one hundred years old and we love to proudly display 'Miss Tiffany's Flag' whenever we get the chance! This flag was a gift to our chapter in 1934 and has traveled many places, including our own state conference. I am the official keeper for the next two years, as I'll be serving as chapter regent. (Wish me luck!!)
Here are some pictures of our decorations.
Each table was decorated with a red and white gingham topper made by one of our members. Aren't they festive?! White place mats, dark blue napkins, the day's agenda printed on patriotic paper and a vintage flag favor competed the place settings. Each table had a potted floral arrangement which also served as a door prize. Patriotic mints were available on each table.
Our chapter registrar stands ready to greet our guests.
We served a salad luncheon featuring chicken salad on dollar rolls. Several of our members brought their own salads such as pasta, fruit, potato, vegetable and jello. We had a very nice variety.
Several ladies 'planning strategy.'
Doesn't the dessert table look festive?! We served cheesecake adorned with strawberries, whipped cream and shortbread cookies.
Our guest speaker was our state senator.
She brought us up to date on her life, how she entered politics (she is a retired educator) and some of the legislation she has helped sponsor. One bill, in particular, will require high school students to pass the same civics test immigrants are required to pass to become American citizens.
I hope you were able to take a few moments this week to honor our American flag and give thanks for the blessings of living in our USA!
