From the Alabama Division's President, Linda Edwards

November 2014

Alabama Daughters,

Next week several members of our Division will travel to Richmond, Virginia for the 2014 General UDC Convention.  This year we will elect new General officers who will lead us for the 2014-2016 term.  Going to Richmond is always an interesting time and I wish that each member could attend a convention there at least once.
The deadline for ordering your 2014 Alabama Division Yearbook is November 4th.  Please note that per by-law "ARTICLE XIII ANNUAL DIVISION CONVENTION  - SECTION 8 YEARBOOK AND MINUTES -.d. Each Division Officer, Chapter President, District Director, and Committee Chairman must purchase a copy of the Yearbook and Minutes."  The books are $10.00 each.  Your Chapter President has the order form.  If you have any questions about this please contact myself or Division Recording Secretary Brandi Evans  brandievans@centurytel.net
All of the Division Committee Chairs have been approved by the Executive Board and are posted on the Alabama Division Page on the United Daughters of the Confederacy website.  I would like to thank all the ladies who agreed to take Chairmanships and also ladies who are serving on committees.  It takes all of us working together to make our Division successful.  We may not all agree with each other all the time, but we should all be working towards the same objectives of our great organization.
Our Honorary Life President Hazel Oliver received a lifetime achievement award from the Sons of Confederate Veterans during her Etowah Chapter 1620 meeting on October 18th.  Honorary Life President Judy Blackwell, Division Corresponding Secretary Glendora James and I traveled to Rainbow City to see Miss Hazel receive this well deserved award.  Miss Hazel is a true treasure to our Division.
It was with great sadness when I posted Shirley Edberg passing to the Division members.  Bettye Moore and I drove to Enterprise for Shirley's funeral.  It was obvious how much Shirley was loved by her family, friends, coworkers and UDC members by the large attendance.
Veterans Day is November 11th, please try to attend a Veterans event and remember to always thank them for their service.  These men and women were willing to give their lives so we could stay free.  When you say your Thanksgiving prayer please include the young men and women who are all over the world protecting our great country.

In UDC love,
Linda Edwards
Alabama Division President
