Yazoo welcomes Delta District MSSDAR members
On July 30-31, Yazoo City welcomed 96 members of the Delta District of the Mississippi State Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution for their annual Delta District meeting.
MSSDAR members assembled at the First United Methodist Church to attend workshops and informative sessions to gain knowledge which will be used in planning the accomplishment of the NSSDAR goals of historic preservation, education and patriotism at the Chapter level.
Mrs. Kathy Eubank, MSSDAR Delta District director, called the meeting to order and Yazoo Chapter NSSDAR Chapter Regent JoAnne Collins introduced Henry Cote, executive director of Yazoo County Economic Development District, who welcomed the MSSDAR Delta District to Yazoo City.
MSSDAR State Regent 2010-2013 Mrs. Janet Looney Whittington, who is a member of the Yazoo Chapter NSDAR, brought greetings. Whittington, who is in the first year of her administration, announced that she has chosen her theme, “The Time is Now.” The State Regent’s Project for the Whittington administration will be the updating of the dependency and office at “Our Lady on the Bluff,” Rosalie in Natchez.
Members were informed that Rosalie is the only antebellum home in Natchez with the original dependency and breezeway still attached, which adds to the relevancy of the State Regent’s project.
After mentioning several changes which will take place at MSSDAR State Conference 2011, Whittington reminded Chapters to call to set up an appointment for her to make the State Regent’s visit.
The meeting continued with the reports for state officers and committee chairmen. Following these reports, members were invited to attend on of three 30-minute workshops, which were chapter regents, chapter treasurers and general members.
