The January meeting of the Three-Ten Club was held at the Crowley home of Jackie Fogleman. Assisting with hostess duties were Mary Beth Geesey and Helen Zaunbrecher. 

President Sandy Melancon presided.

Mary Beth Geesey made a presentation entitled, “Communications: From Smoke Signals to the Internet.”

Geesey began her program by giving members a graphic depicting 30 means of communication used through the ages, starting with a primitive form of language. Following were hieroglyphics, homing pigeons, papyrus rolls and the printing press. In the 19th century, new means of communication abounded with the invention of the telegraph, telephone and microphone. The 20th century made radio and television a part of people’s lives and saw the beginning of the digital age. With the use of computers, the worldwide web and social networks, current means of communication are continuously changing.

Following the program, the members discussed the pros and cons of new means of communication.

Enjoying the fellowship and refreshments that evening were Carolyn Barousse, Florette Bergeron, Muff Bier, Bobbie delaHoussaye, Isabella delaHoussaye, Virgina Duson, Betty Faulk, Flo Faulk, Jackie Fogleman, Letza Fogleman, Kay Fruge, Sissy Gall, Mary Beth Geesey, Joellen Hindman, Joan Hoffpauer, Flo Jones, Brucie Landry, Sandy Melancon, Louise Morrow, Gretchen Ohlenforst, Georgie Petitjean, Peggy Sandidge, Helen Zaunbrecher and Elaine Wright.
