Decora Study Club hosts installation luncheon
The Decora Study Club met recently for a luncheon at the Victoria Women's Clubhouse and installation of officers for the 2013-14 year.
The installation service featured a paper chain constructed of many different colors representing varying club member's personalities but who are able to work together for the advancement of the Decora Study Club. The installation service was written and conducted by club member Paula Nersesian, who only a few days later was taken from us by a fatal automobile accident. She will be remembered and honored by members and friends for years to come.
Officers installed for the coming year include Martha E. Jones, Ph.D., president; Pam Fitch, first vice president; Mary Ann Wright, second vice president; Eileen Fowler, third vice president; Dolly Stokes, recording secretary; Sue Jones, corresponding secretary; Mary Virginia Jacobs, treasurer; Beth Person, Ed.D, program chairwoman and Barbara Skipper, co-chairwoman; Becky Miller, publicity chairwoman; Jane Cox, historian; and Ann Heinrich, parliamentarian.
The first meeting of the coming year will be a luncheon Sept. 17 at the Victoria Women's Club House. The program themes for the coming year will be presented, which center on the president's theme: "Our Cultures, Our Heritage." The Decora Study Club was formed in Victoria in 1950 with the official name of Decora, a feminine derivative of the Latin term, decorum, chosen to reflect good taste in conduct, manners and appearance. Charter members included 48 ladies who are fondly remembered for their service and outstanding leadership in the city of Victoria's history.
Any woman residing in Victoria or vicinity is eligible for membership in the Decora Study Club.
