Laureate Alpha Omicron Chapter meeting held
Laureate Alpha Omicron Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi met recently in the home of President Frances Smith.
Joyce Parker and Sue Lynn Hatcher served as co-hostesses.
Margaret Williams presented the program on genealogy. Williams is a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and is applying for membership to Colonial Dames.
She read about her ancestor, Quinton Stockwell, who came to the U.S. in 1648. He was an indentured servant at only eight years old, hailing from Scotland. At a young age, he was married and captured by Native Americans for almost a year. She read a letter to his wife that was printed in one of the family lineage books she circulated.
Smith distributed yearbook covers that Initially Yours had stitched with this year's theme, "Light Up Your Life."
Jeanette Goggans presented last year's scrapbook "You're Among Friends" to the president.
The chapter voted by secret ballot for its sweetheart, who will be announced at the next meeting Nov. 5 at the Hatcher home.
The sweetheart will be honored at a brunch in February.
The chapter will attend the dinner theater in Shiner on Nov. 3. A shower for Perpetual Help Home is Nov. 5.
