President Noella Oberlin resided over the Huguenot Society of Tennessee meeting at the Tea Cottage in Chattanooga. Key guests included the National Huguenot Society’s President General Janet Butler Walker and Third Vice President Marjorie Wilson. Mrs. Walker shared her vision and goals for the next two years: Membership, Friendship, and Leadership.
Ms. Oberlin announced that the Mayflower’s 400 anniversary celebration is next year.
Events to commemorate this anniversary will be held on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean and will tell the story of the Mayflower Pilgrims and their journey from Leiden, Holland and Plymouth, England to modern-day Provincetown and, finally, Plymouth Colony in 1620.
Likewise, on March 18, 2020 the Huguenot Society of Tennessee will be celebrating its 60 anniversary. There are some Huguenot ancestors that came over on the Mayflower. These will be discussed at the Spring 2020 meeting to be held on April 4, 2020 at the Tea Cottage at 11 a.m. at 2233 Hickory Valley Road.
The Huguenot Society of Tennessee meets twice per year to celebrate its heritage. Anyone with a Huguenot ancestor may request additional information or make reservations for the next meeting by sending an email to email@example.com.
