Coterie Club program topic 'Southern values'


Members of the Kilgore Coterie Club met in the First Baptist Church Parlor on January 25.  The ladies enjoyed refreshments provided by hostess Dianne Miller and co-hostess Cynthia Adams.  President Francye Phillips welcomed the group and called the meeting to order.

Presenting the program, was member Jean McLaurin, sharing her thoughts on “Southern Values.” McLaurin opened the program with the definition of values.  She defined values as what is important or worthy to us in relationship to our principles or standards.  She discussed some of the differences between the Northern and Southern parts of our country and some of the stereotypes that have evolved over the years.

Her program also explored the culture of the South as she explained four aspects of Southern life that have contributed to this unique culture.   These four values the Southerner has adopted to their lives include faith, family, reverence and identity.  She ended her program sharing how Southerners traditionally love their freedoms, honor the troops, follow the Constitution, and enjoy helping others. 

 Minutes from the January 11th meeting was read by Liz Lockhart.  Ann Dorney presented the treasurer's report.  The Club Collect was read by Cristi Langley.
