Library director addresses DAR

Friday, June 13, 2008

The Robert Lewis Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution met in May at Village Manor for lunch and a meeting with hostesses Bonnie Scheuchenzuber and LaQuita Weaver.

The guest speaker was Jan Allen, director of the Marshall County Memorial Library, who spoke on literacy. There are several programs already in progress -- or soon will be -- to enhance and encourage literacy, especially with young people.

This includes Bouncing Babies for children from five months to 3 years old, and another program for 3- to 5-year-olds.

Also discussed were computer classes and using the genealogy Web site at the library and at home, using the bar code number from your library card.

The marking of the graves for Frances Thompson, Lettie Hinds, Catherine Allen and Evelyn Harris were May 31 at Lone Oak Cemetery. Harriet Stalling's grave at Lynnville Cemetery will be marked June 7 at 10 a.m.

This month the group is collecting large and extra-large pajama bottoms and lounging shorts for service personnel hospitalized at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany.

Another guest was Sadie Davidson, a member of the Nolensville Chapter, who has recently relocated to Lewisburg.
