From the Alabama Division's President, Linda Edwards

October 2014

Dear Alabama Daughters,
Time has really been busy for me since convention.  I hope all of you are rested and ready to get busy with all our Chapter, District and Division activities that are upcoming.  I had the pleasure of going to Ft Payne for DeKalb County Chapter meeting September 27th.  It was wonderful to see the Chapter ladies and listen to the speaker Miss Alice Bailey who told about her great great grandmother Elodie Dawson who was a half sister to Mary Todd Lincoln.
I hope to have all the Division Chairs in place by the end of this week and will post them once the Executive Board approves.
Winter Board will be in Montgomery on January 17th, 2015  at the Montgomery Country Club.

District Meetings

February 14th         Joe Wheeler District
February 21st         Bankhead District

Please plan on attending your District meeting and if at all possible try to go to some of the other District meetings.  It is always fun to see friends that we usually only see at convention.  One of the joys of being in UDC is making friends all over the state and  sharing the love we all have for our confederate heritage.
The Division Officers are hard at working learning their new jobs.  I know of several new applications and supplemental applications that are ready to be mailed.  There is still time to submit prize money to the Prize Money Committee Chair for the 2015 Convention, please email Holly Muller at hhmuller@roadrunner.com, she will send you a form to fill out.  All forms and checks will need to be sent to Holly by October 20th.
I plan to continue the flag preservation project for my President Project.  I hope to meet with Dr. Robert Bradley within the next two weeks to discuss which flag he feels needs our help. Once I know which flag we will raise funds for I will post on this forum.
We all owe past President Donna Clark a big THANK YOU for the wonderful two years she served as our Division President!

In UDC love,


Linda Edwards
Alabama Division President
