RUSHVILLE — Milroy Research Literary Club met Sept. 11

Milroy Research Literary Club met Tuesday evening at the home of JoAnn Brees. President Brees opened the meeting by reading a poem "Recipe for Happiness."

The president presented a very interesting program on the life of Katie Couric, talented television journalist. Ms. Couric began her television reporting career in Washington DC following graduation from the University of Virginia in 1979. Her career included stints on television productions Nightline, 20/20, Good Morning America, and the Today Show where she co-anchored for 15 years. Her five year stint as anchor of CBS evening news ended with her dismissal in May of 1911.

Her latest show, "Katie," a syndicated daytime talk show, began on Sept. 12. The show will focus on women's issues and concerns. It airs locally at 3 p.m. on Channel 6. Ms. Couric's first book, "The Best Advice I Ever Got from Extraordinary People" became a New York Times book club best seller.

The secretary's report was given by secretary, Pat Carrigan. Fifteen members responded to roll call. Treasurer Carolyn Cleland gave the financial report. Following the collection of dues, the meeting was

adjourned.

Delicious refreshments were served by the hostess during the social time.

The next meeting will be at the home of Marjorie Harcourt and the program will be presented by Ann Innis.
