Our meeting on Saturday, April 1, (is it April already?) will feature Cal McIntire, who is a descendant of John Smith. He will give us some insights on what he has learned from his own research. Had to be a challenge. As some of have learned the hard way, any Smith line is a challenge. Fortunately, lessons learned on specific lines that are not ours are often helpful on other lines that are ours.
Our new officers are hard at work arranging programs, working on ongoing projects, and putting things in place to give us another successful year. Our Committees can usually benefit from additional assistance, so if you have some expertise or interest in an area covered by one of them, please make your interest known. We'll put you in touch with the right person.
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!
Keep supporting your local Society, your local library, and especially the Alabama Room!
