Society Saturday - Southern Dames of Illinois

There is a brand new lineage society in Illinois - the Illinois State Society of Southern Dames of America.  They held their inaugural meeting on May 5, 2016.

The Southern Dames of America is a lineage organization that celebrates southern heritage and raises money for services for people with blindness and other eyesight disabilities.  Illinois is now their newest state society.

In the five months since invitations were sent to join, the Illinois Society has grown to include 51 charter members.  Thirty ladies met in Bloomington to learn about the society and the eye program.

New members were welcomed, given a gift along with their certificates, and signed the charter form.

Officers were installed, and everyone looks forward to a long association with this new (to us) Society.
