Just a reminder about events for our regular meeting day on Monday, November 16 at the meeting room of the Quitman Public Library:
3:00 – 5:00 p.m. at the library — A jewelry party at the meeting room serving as a society fund raiser and provided by Kathy Lynn and Joe Copeland who are presenting our Cherokee Culture program Monday evening. Some of the jewelry will feature turquoise and other natural stones. You and your guests and the public are all invited.
5:30 p.m. — Our monthly pre-meeting dutch-treat gathering at Peralta’s on Highway 37 in Quitman. This is for those who wish to come, but everyone is invited. It’s just a chance to visit.
7:00 p.m. — Our regular monthly meeting at the Quitman Public Library meeting room at 202 E. Goode Street (Highway 154) in downtown Quitman will feature Kathy Lynn and Joe Copeland presenting a second program on “Cherokee Culture, Artifacts and Traditional Stories.”
They will be bringing their Pyramid Tent, the artifact exhibit, as well as the living history exhibit for life in the 1750’s-1800’s for the Cherokee. The latter does include household items, foods, medicinal herbs, etc, such as clothing, toys and games and more. Kathy will be telling Traditional Cherokee Stories with her Story Table. She will have books she has written on the Cherokee Indians and will have Native American and Custom made Jewelry for sale after the meeting. We encourage you to bring a guest. The public is always invited to our programs.
This is our last regular meeting until January, and we hope all in traveling distance will make a special effort to attend.
