They Worship Monkeys, Snakes And VegeTables

Our family visited many beautiful and elaborate temples and saw many strange happenings while living in Japan as a teenager. In some temples people prayed and worshipped snakes. If the snake touched or ate food put in front of them, the person that offered the food thought they was blessed.

Monkeys, rivers, trees, vegetables and even dead ancestors were worshipped in other places.

New Board of Management installed at Caddel-Smith Chapter awards

By Billie Nast

Every two years a new Board of Management is installed at the annual Convention of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas.

It is always sad to bid farewell to our President General. It is a big job to manage an organization of over 7,000 women. We all wish Dr. Betty Edwards well and appreciate all the hard work she put in for our organization. Our new President General will be Barbara Stevens from Kingwood. Barbara had a great love for Texas, Texas History and the Daughters of the Republic of Texas. She has always enjoyed doing family research and her President General’s Project will be an IT project to make researching our records easier.

HomeTown

With her busy schedule as pastor of the First United Methodist Church in Pearsall – and with her two daughters grown – Rev. Linda Montgomery admits to not cooking as much as she did when the girls were living at home. She said that she and her husband, Tim, “eat out a lot now.” Spending less time in the kitchen has meant more time to get immersed in the community that a year ago became home to this active couple and where they celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary last May.

Linda, who has been in the ministry for some 40 years, 20 of them as an ordained minister, and Tim, a retired history teacher, started dating as seniors in high school in Sherman and got married right before their final year at what is now the University of North Texas.
