PORT ALLEN - The Iberville Parish Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution met Tuesday, Nov. 27 at the West Baton Rouge Parish Museum.

After the opening ritual and a brief business meeting, Linda Collins, of the museum presented the program.

The program, World War II, The Homefront, was narrated by Collins though the eyes of a woman living in Port Allen during the War.

Collins was dressed in a female work outfit from the period and used a set that included a radio. The radio was used to present different speeches and news reports. She talked about the various jobs that women did to help the war effort and about the German prisoners of war held in a Port Allen camp.

After the program several members of the chapter and a guest shared their memories of the war period. Most were children at the time but retained vivid memories.
