  From the Alabama Division President, Linda Edwards

November 2015


This month we can all meet one of the objectives of our organization, which is Patriotic. November 11th is Veterans Day, this day we honor Veterans, deceased and alive. Traditionally many Chapters have Veterans Day programs for our living veterans, you can also do many things as an individual. It could be something as simple as thanking a veteran for their service, or paying for a military family's  Thanksgiving meal, just please remember these men and women especially on the 11th, they are putting their lives on the line to protect us and deserve our thanks. 

Later this week our General UDC Convention begins in Raleigh; we have fourteen ladies who have registered to attend, including four Division Officers, three ex Division Presidents and Division members. I know the Convention will be a great success.  Our Division newsletter the "Ties That Bind" has been entered in the newsletter contest, and I am taking the 2nd place winner in the Category "A" scrapbook to be judged.  I hope to return with many awards to share with you.  We have many outstanding ladies working with the Division this year, and I hope their efforts are rewarded. 

The $13,867.00 raised for the conservation of the 26th/50th flag was presented to the Alabama Archives on October 28th. Flag Fund Chair Ann King and I presented the check to Director Steve Murray and Dr. Bob Bradley. They are so appreciative of our Division for all the monies we have raised for flag conservation. Many thanks to the individuals, Chapters, and Districts who gave money to help make this presentation possible. The order form for our new charms, the 18th flag and Douglas are on the Alabama Division website page complete with pictures. If you would like both charms, you may prepay $35.00 by December 1st. After this date, the charms will be $20.00 each. They will be given out at our Winter Board meeting, which is January 16th at the Montgomery Country Club. Remember to get your 2015 Yearbook orders to Recording Secretary Brandi Evans by November 4th. Only a few extra Yearbooks will be ordered, so please send your order in by the 4th. I hope you all have a blessed and safe Thanksgiving on the 26th. As always, please call or email me if you have any questions. 

Yours in UDC,

Linda Edwards
Alabama Division President
