The John Goode Chapter and the Meherrin Chapter of National Society Colonial Dames XVII Century met jointly on Aug. 7 in South Hill for a luncheon hosted by the John Goode Chapter and arranged by member Lisa Vaughan. The highlight of the meeting was a fascinating presentation by “Ladies Victorian,” who demonstrated in authentic fashion what women wore in both the American colonial and Civil War periods. Joining President Liz Gielow, back left, of the John Goode Chapter and President Lucy “Cookie” Currin, back right, of the Meherrin Chapter were special guests, both of whom are Virginia Society Colonial Dames XVII Century Honorary State Presidents, Librarian General Nan Ackerman, front left, and Kathy Deegan, front right.
