Regent Kauk announced that October 11th was a service day for the Chapter. A motion was made by Rhonda Davis that we honor our local Sheriff and Police Departments on that day. June Kice seconded this motion. On October 11, 2019, Jauflione Chapter will meet at 9 a.m. at the Court House. We will deliver a can of coffee and doughnuts to the Sheriff’s office.
Regent Kauk announced that everyone is encouraged to bring cosmetic bags and travel size health and beauty items to the November meeting. These items will be given to the lady veterans living in the Veterans Home in Mexico, MO. Susy Pool made a motion that we ask Scotland County Care Center for a list of items that the veterans living at the Care Center need and that we provide these items for the veterans. This motion was seconded by Connie Bratton. We will plan on delivering these items in December.
It was announced that Jauflione Chapter has one 40-year member and eight ladies that have been members for 10 years. It was decided that we will purchase a certificate for the 40-year member to be presented at a later date. We also discussed printing our own certificate for the eight ladies with 10 years as members.
Regent Kauk also gave a big “Thank You” to Kathy Kiddoo and Reta Stott for decorating a store front window for Constitution Week. June Kice read a Thank You note to the Chapter for all of the well wishes and prayers she received during her recovery from her surgery.
Our program was given by Connie Lee and Nancy Mears on the Madonna Trail and Roslyn Heights. Thank you both for all of the interesting information we learned about both of these historical sites.
