Laureate Mu hears of first ladies
CROWLEY - Members of Laureate Mu chapter of Beta Sigma Phi met at the home of Elsie Rowell on July 2.
The hostess continued the program on the wives of presidents that had been started at the June meeting by Glenda Atkinson.
President Truman said about the wives of presidents, “I hope some day somebody will take time to evaluate the true role of the wife of a President and to assess the many burdens she has to bear and the contributions she makes.”
In her program, Rowell attempted to do just that, beginning with Abigail Adams and concluding with the current first lady. Each served her country well, left her own mark and taught the country something special about its history.
In communications from International, members were informed that an International Convention will take place in 20l6 in Kansas City, Mo.
Members brought bathroom tissue to be donated to Miss Helen’s Soup Kitchen. A check was also written to be delivered to the Welcome House for the annual donation.
Plans were made to travel to Lafayette during July to view the current exhibitions at the Paul and Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum.
Rowell served refreshments to members in attendance including Glenda Atkinson, Gloria Cart, Jean Hanks, Connie Jaubert, Brenella Joubert, Jane Love, Gloria Stutes and Nancy Tislow.
