Corsicana — Dawson Garden Club Yard of the Month for October

Dawson Garden Club has chosen for Yard of the Month for October the home of Larry and Jane Adams at 307 N. Main in Dawson. This home is always appealing, but it is especially appropriate with the yard and porch decoration for the season. Be sure to give it a good look as you drive by.

Chaplain Geneva Davis led the opening prayer. President Stubbs led the ritual and the Lord’s Prayer. Marlene Ivy led the Pledge of Allegiance to the United States Flag, the Pledge to the Texas Flag and the Salute to the Flag of the Confederacy.

Secretary-treasurer Nancy Weems read the minutes and treasurer’s report both of which were approved. Jan Reeder reported on the We-Can Project. Registrar Nancy Rula reported the number of chapter members and prospective members. Historian Barbara Shore will be sent the minutes to be put on the website.

Stubbs reported on the Morse Memorial marker. The amount needed by November is about $600.

Jan Reeder and Nancy Rula are the chapter’s delegates to the Convention. The chapter will reimburse Jan for prizes she will furnish at the convention.

Marlene  Ivy passed out an updated page for the yearbook and will update the membership list. As chair of the District VIII Scholarship, Ivy passed out guidelines so that the members could made recommendations for a recipient. The District VIII meeting will be March 23 in Longview.

Pres. Stubbs suggested the purchase of a Stainless Banner as a memorial to our deceased members. Nancy Rula made a motion, seconded by Nancy Weems, that Dana be reimbursed and that members research minutes to discover names to go on the banner. The motion carried.

Stubbs will send a newsletter including a dues reminder. She reminded the chapter that we need to help with the Jan. 6 Albert Miller Lea Memorial Service. The chapter has been invited to co-host with the Parsons Camp in remembering the Battle of Galveston.

Jan Reeder presented a program about Mary Boykin Chestnut, a writer who kept a diary during the War between the States.

The meeting was adjourned with the reading of a poem written by Dana’s mother, Alice Bell. It was titled “Ode to a Confederate Soldier.”

After the singing of “Dixie,” refreshments of punch and cookies were served by Dana Stubbs. Eight members were present.

  • 3-26-14 Expo Commercial heifers.jpg Curl wins first leg of Commercial Heifers

    Caleb Curl, 13, of Frost FFA, won grand champion of the commercial heifer show, the first leg of the commercial heifer overall prizes. Unlike a lot of the other animal categories, commercial heifers aren't show-things with smooth coats and stardust on their hooves. They're straight out of the pasture, a bit muddy and certainly not the lady-like, pampered creatures that will be led around the ring in the registered heifer show.

  • 11-21-13 Annie.jpg ‘Annie Get Your Gun’ through Sunday at the Palace

    It’s the big musical, the one that makes me think of ‘cast of thousands,’ or in our case, dozens at least, and it’s here only for a few short days. ‘Annie Get Your Gun,’ is Irving Berlin’s candy box treasure of a play about Annie Oakley, the sharpshooter in love with a showman.
    It’s presented by the Warehouse Living Arts Center but because of its size is on stage at the Palace Theatre. Shows will be at 7:30 p.m. tonight, Friday and Saturday, with a 2 p.m. Sunday matinee.
