Come Hear a Humorous Exploration of All Things Southern

Pottsboro, Texas  | February 21, 2018

There will be a humorous and interesting program given at the March 1st meeting of the Preston Trail NSDAR meeting. The title of the program will be “Southern Fried.”  The speaker for the March 1st meeting will be Catherine Fowler.   There’s something enchanting and irresistible about the style of a Southern woman and the incomparable culture that produced her.  Come revel in our wonderfulness as we gently poke fun at all things Southern — from magnolias to moon pies.   Sit a spell on the porch and share in the laughter as we decode the manners and myths, the rules and rituals of the storied South.  Rich traditions such as how to eat watermelon in your frilly sundress to the importance of biscuits, banjos, and bless your heart will all be explained.  We will make you proud of putting’ on the grits!   Y’all come now, ya hear?

The speaker, Catherine Fowler is a graduate of the University of North Texas and taught English at Lake Highlands High School for four and a half years when it first opened. Mrs. Fowler is an adult Sunday school teacher and chaired various church committees – Council on Ministries, Worship, Education, Women’s Retreat and Capital Campaigns. She has served as a librarian and as district library coordinator for Frisco Independent School District, where she worked for 22 years, serving on many committees. Mrs. Fowler and her husband, Pat, are honored to have a school named after them—Pat and Catherine Fowler Middle School. She has been awarded the “Spirit of Frisco” award by the Frisco Chamber of Commerce and serves on the Frisco Education Foundation Board, where she helped raise money for and award scholarships to graduating seniors. Mrs. Fowler has volunteered as a living history demonstrator as the school marm in the one-room school at Frisco Heritage Village. She has presented programs to various organizations, including the Frisco Garden Club, Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), Frisco Association of School Personnel and more.
