This is Jeni Britton Bauer. She stood at the door and greeted each person, casually saying, "Hi, I'm Jeni." Pretty cool. I didn't even realize it was her at first. Photo submitted by Jill Nolin

This is the Latimer plot in the old Decatur cemetery. Mary Latimer McLendon (1840-1921), sister of Rebecca Latimer Felton, first female U.S. senator, is buried here.  Ms. McLendon was a leading suffrage-st and Prohibitionist from Georgia.  She has a famous memorial at the state capital at the foot of the staircase that leads to the House of Representatives (a beautiful white marble fountain). I've read that she was given the honor to be the first female voter from Georgia but died before the election. Ms Cathy Vogel, from the Friends of Decatur Cemetery,  said that they think 50 mph winds toppled the monument last week. Photo submitted by Chris Billingsley
