AlaBenton's April meeting featured David Hodnett and his interesting and entertaining program on Writing Local Histories.
On Saturday, May 2, 2015, we'll have the pleasure of a program by Tom Mullins, who will give us a Virtual Tour of Edgemont Cemetery. The last virtual tour he gave us was full of history on a different cemetery, but it was much enjoyed by all, and we're looking forward to this one as well. Unless I have my cemeteries confused, Edgemont is a much larger cemetery.
If you haven't already paid your dues for 2015, you can remedy that situation by bringing your check with you, or you can leave it in the Alabama Room box for the Treasurer the next time you're at the Library.
We had some of our "genealogy" T-shirts at the April meeting so everyone could see them and make purchases, if they wished. Many did. Some are also for sale in the Alabama Room. If you would like to buy one, they are $10 for S, M, L and XL, and you can purchase a larger size for $12.
It has been announced that a speaker has been engaged to conduct our 2015 AlaBenton Summer Workshop, and you'll be given details at the meeting Saturday, May 2.
Don't forget--our members are our greatest asset. We thank every one of you who serves AlaBenton, in either a leadersip role or a support role. Please keep up the good work!
Keep supporting your local Society, your local library, and especially the Alabama Room!
