Indian Trails Chapter of the Colonial Dames of XVII Century met recently at the home of Susan Henry. The chapter was honored with the attendance of guests, National Curator General and Ohio Parliamentarian Yvonne Hiteshue, Honorary State President Grace Yerian, and potential member Barbara Daulton.
After a delicious meal catered by Shoelaces, Leslie Holmes presented the program on “Colonial Music”.
While the very early colonists coming to the New World did not bring many musical instruments with them, they did bring their voices and the music of their home countries. Many songs of the colonial times are still well known today including some of the songs of Christmas including “Joy to the World” and “Hark the Herald Angels”.
President Kay McIntire, Vice President Joyce Peters, Registrar Frances Sharp and Historian Pat McKenzie were officially installed as officers by Yvonne Hiteshue at the beginning of the business meeting.
President Kay McIntire shared with the chapter a thank you received from Captain Clayton Septent. Indian Trails had sent cool ties to Captain Septent’s company while they were stationed in Kuwait. The thank you came in the form of a note, certificate and a United States flag that had been flown over the Al Jaber Base in Kuwait.
Beth Mitchell shared a pattern for handlebar bags for walkers that members of the chapter may help make for residents of the Veteran’s home in Georgetown and Cape May.
