Lincoln expert speaks at Altrusa meeting


Lauran Perrill presented an excellently-researched program on Abraham Lincoln and his family ties at the second meeting in September of Altrusa International of Washington Court House. Perrill, a retired elementary teacher from the Washington City Schools system, showed her extensive knowledge of and enthusiasm for the subject of all things Lincoln, in which she may well be Fayette County’s resident expert—but after all, she has the honor of being distantly related to Lincoln’s beloved stepmother. After the presentation, Altrusans clustered around the table on which Perrill had placed a small assortment of books and photos. More Altrusans than usual attended the meeting, as the club is only five weeks away from its Oct. 27 “Loving Spoonsful” tasting luncheon, a major fundraiser to which approximately 170 tickets have already been sold.
