Body

The D’Arbonne Chapter of the DAR met March 14, at United Methodist Church in Farmerville. LSDAR State Regent Charlotte White was the guest speaker. She presented a program on the Badin-Roque House in Natchez, LA. It was built in the 1830s, and is a Poteaux-en-terre (post in ground) French Creole cottage with bousillage (a mixture of mud, Spanish moss, and deer hair) constructed walls. The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on June 6, 1982.

Chapter business was discussed, reports from committees, and the minutes were given. After President General Van Doran’s message, the National Defense report was given; then the American Indians minute and the Conservation minute. Reports on the Boston Massacre, 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War, 400th anniversary of the Mayflower, 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, and the United States Flag were all heard.

The next chapter meeting will be April 18. Anyone who is interested in joining the DAR, should email questions and inquiries to darbonnedar@gmail.com.
