Laurete Mu Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi
Mrs. Clementine Kirsch showed the video “I Always Do My Collars First” at the meeting of Laurete Mu Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi held at her home on March 4.
The documentary was co-directed by students at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and marks the first release by the University’s Cinematic Arts Workshop.
The film follows four Cajun women from Breaux Bridge, from baptisms to funerals, Catholic masses, and Cajun dances, showing how the ordinary ritual of ironing is woven into the fabric of family life. Members shared their own ironing experiences with the group.
Canned meat was collected for the Christian Care Center. Members were asked to bring cornbread mixes to the April meeting, which will be held at the home of Mrs. Edna Dilly. Plans will be finalized at the April meeting to attend the Art Gala at the Gallery on April 5, as a cultural outing.
The hostess served refreshments to Nancy Tislow, Gloria Stutes, Shirley Griffin, Connie Jaubert, Jane Love and Elsie Rowell.
