Samuel Dale Chapter, NSDAR

MERIDIAN —     A presentation about the one dollar bill was a highlight of the March meeting of the Samuel Dale Chapter of the NSDAR.

    Regent Glenda Thomas made the presentation on what is most often referred to as paper money, but is actually made from a blend of cotton and linen with red and blue minute fibers running through it. According to Thomas, a special blend of ink is used on it, then it is starched to make it water resistant.

    Thomas also discussed the symbols printed on the bill and their meanings.

    After calling the meeting to order, Regent Thomas read the article, “I Know God is Giggling.”

    In the absence of the chaplain, Registrar Ann Schroeder assisted Thomas with the Opening Ritual. Janet Sinyard led the group in the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America. Thomas led members in the Salute to the Mississippi Flag and the American’s Creed.

    The President General’s Message was presented by Thomas. The National Defense Message (One If By Land, Two If By Sea) was presented by Caroline Wilson.

    DAR Minutes followed: A Flag Minute by Janet Sinyard; a Constitution Minute by Thomas; an Indian Minute by Dot Shank; A Rosalie Minute by Thomas.

    Wilson read the minutes of the last meeting, which were approved as read. Ruby Robinson presented the treasurer’s report.

    It was announced that Lallie Elise Bennett, Samuel Dale’s Good Citizen of the Year, was a winter in the state contest.

    Plans were made for the next meeting, which will be the Chapter’s Awards Tea on April 7 at 2 p.m.

    Members were reminded to attend the Pilgrimage in Natchez, March 9-April 13. Anne Schroeder of Samuel Dale chapter will serve at the DAR mansion on March 26.

    Members present at the March meeting were Ann Schroeder, Glenda Thomas, Janet Sinyard, Ruby Robinson, Jacque Longmeier, Dorothy Shank and Caroline Wilson.
