Chapter Report [p. 146-148]

We have had a most enthusiastic and progressive year in all the UDC work. We have celebrated five anniversary days, programs arranged by our anniversary chairman, Mrs. Whit Boyd. Then Crosses of Honor have been bestowed in veterans.

Our President, Mrs. Will Hanson, as general chairman, assisted by the ladies of our Chapter, raised $70 for the new boys’ home. Mrs. J. M. Gibson, chairman of Flag Day.

We raised $340 to defray the expenses of veterans to the Macon reunion and $301 was made on diners served during carnival.

We have presented the Dick Dowling Camp with a new piano.

Have paid our pledges in full made at the Convention.

Miss Mamie Williams, our Auxiliary directress, has reorganized the E. B. Bruce Auxiliary.

On Memorial Day, our Chapter, assisted by the R. E. Lee Chapter, made 300 wreaths and decorated the graves of all Confederate veterans, and appropriate exercises were held at the First Baptist church. We have sent a wreath to each veteran that has passed away in our city.

In December, our Chapter assisted by R. E. Lee Chapter, entertained the State Convention.

We have 221 members, 11 new members.

Beginning with a new year we hope the future will be as prosperous as the past .
