Celebrated the birthday of Lee and Jackson by attending th exercises of the R. E. Lee Chapter. June 3rd was recognized by a beautifully prepared program by Mrs. Sidney Huston, our anniversary chairman and Mrs. T. C. Rowe, musical director. Twelve Crosses of Honor were bestowed on this occasion.

In May the Chapter entertained the Mexican war veterans, assisted by R. E. Lee and Dick Dowling Camp UCV.

Paid State and General dues; sent delegates to both Conventions; raised over $300 to help defray expenses of Confederate Veterans to reunion. This was done by Mrs. J. M. Hoover and committee and was ably assisted by the children of E. B. Bates Auxiliary.

Paid our pledge of $100 to Confederate Woman's Home.
