Daughters of the American Revolution

James Blair Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, met at the Kinsloe House on March 13, 2013. Regent Jan Warren called the meeting to order. Following the Pledge of Allegiance and the National Anthem, accompanied on the piano by Gelene Simpson, a prayer was led by Chaplain Carolyn French.

The program on Women’s Issues was introduced by program chairman Betty Partain. Speakers were Dawn Traylor, flight paramedic and Lora Murphy, flight nurse, who are members of a flight crew who operates a flying ICU/ER for Petroleum Helicopters Inc. (PHI), an air ambulance service. They explained how to become a member, how to request their services, who must authorize the service, how it is financed and where they are located at the Corsicana Airport. In their interesting program they used several case examples of how lives were saved following accidents, major illnesses, and hospital to hospital transfers. A donation was made to the organization by the James Blair Chapter members.

Hostesses for the social hour were Lynda Green and Donna Ingham.
