The Beta Lambda Chapter of Kappa Kappa Iota, a professional teachers organization, held its monthly meeting at Eastside Elementary School on Nov. 15.

Hostesses for the event were Chrystal Gauthreaux, Becky Sharpe, Corrine Wilson and Lauren Kennedy, while Lisa White from the Blue Star Mothers was the guest speaker, members said.

The members of Blue Star Mothers are mothers who have or have had children serve in the military.

Through their monthly meetings and chapter activities, members support each other, their children in the military, wounded veterans in need, and veterans in the area, as they promote patriotism, members said.
