May 6, 2017
Our program on Saturday, April 1, featuring Cal McIntire, may have been on a different subject than had been previously reported, but it was engrossing and enlightening to hear his experiences and insights during his fascinating career in foreign lands.
On Saturday, May 6, our guest speaker, Falon Hurst, will present a history of the Calhoun County Sheriff's Department and the people who have served their community in that office. Law enforcement is often an unsung profession, but we owe much to those who serve.
Don't forget--our members are our greatest asset. We thank every one of you who serves or has served AlaBenton, in either a leadership role or a support role. Please keep up the good work! We honor our ancestors by remembering them, but we can't remember them if we don't know who they are, so get busy! And speaking of assets, it's dues time, and no organization can operate without financial resources. It's only $15 per year, and it can be an individual or a family membership, so please get your dues in as soon as possible. Many thanks!
The May meeting will be our last regular meeting prior to our summer hiatus, so we hope to have a good attendance!
Keep supporting your local Society, your local library, and especially the Alabama Room!
