 2017 Winter Board Call





From the Alabama Division President, Pat Lewis

December 1, 2016


Christmas in the South sponsored by our Division Children of the Confederacy at Confederate Park was wonderful with UDC members bringing ornaments for the tree and toys for the Ronald McDonald House. CofC members Miss Caroline Turner, Miss Hannah Appleton, and Miss Haileigh Himes read “Christmas in the Confederate White House: How the Davis Family Spent the Christmas of 1864” by Mrs. Varina Davis. The Cradle of the Confederacy SCV Camp 962 posted and retired the colors after which salutes to the flag were presented.  Miss Caroline Turner, President Alabama Division CofC gave the welcome with Mrs. Betty Lovvorn, Division Director of CofC introducing the Division President Pat Lewis.  President Lewis thanked Betty Lovvorn, 3rd Vice President and her daughter Cathleen for such a nice event and introduced the Division Officers, Ex-Presidents of Division, Honorary Life Presidents, Treasurer General Linda Edwards and Alabama Division Directors. Mr. Andy Bodenheimer, Southeast Central Brigade 1st Lt. Commander brought greetings from the SCV. Following the program guests joined in for a fine Christmas song sing-a-long led by various members of the audience. Before leaving guests were treated to holiday treats served by UDC ladies and CofC members. Following this some of the guests joined the CofC members at the cemetery across the road to place a wreath.

Such a fine way to begin our holidays ­ joining UDC friends and CofC members and their families. As the holiday season begins I want to wish everyone a “Merry Christmas”.

Honoring UDC,
Pat Lewis, Division President
