  From the Alabama Division President, Linda Edwards

Dear Alabama Daughters,

June is here, as you all know, this is the time we start to work on our Division reports. Please make note of some changes on a few of the forms and the dates they are due. The forms are located on the Division Webpage, and there are a few located in the back of our 2014 Minute Book. I look forward to reading the reports that are to be sent to me. If you have any questions about any of the forms, please contact the Chair of the committee or myself.

I am very happy to announce that on May 24th, I attended the Chapter re-chartering of the Stephen D. Lee Chapter 1201. I would like to thank Marsha Boutwell and Susan Dooley for all the time and hard work they put into making this a reality. The Chapter has 8 members and several ladies considering membership.

The Selma Chapter held one of the nicest event that I have attended since my term began. On May 23rd, Pat Godwin and her Chapter members along with other heritage organizations held the dedication of Confederate Circle at Live Oak Cemetery in Selma.  It is impossible to describe how beautiful the circle is, I would encourage you to make a trip to Selma to see it for yourself. Pat gave her life to this project for many years, and it is truly amazing to see the end result!

Our Convention is taking shape, if you haven't made your room reservation, please do so soon, the original block has been filled and the hotel is working with us to try and accommodate us with additional rooms. Remember, if you are interested in submitting a design for the Podium it needs to be sent to Ann King by August 1st.  Also, remember our silent auction for the Division Flag Fund, when you are doing your summer cleaning put aside some items to bring to help raise money for our 26th/50th Flag. 

The form for the "catch up" charms is located on our Division webpage. It is a prepaid form for 6 charms for $100.00. The last day to order this set is July 31st, I will place the order with Pamela Wright on this date, so hopefully, we will have the charms by Convention. 

I know that many Chapter Presidents are planning dates for the 2015-2016 year, please note that our Winter Board will be held on Saturday, January 16th, 2016. Please plan your Chapter meetings so that they do not conflict with Winter Board. 

Please remember our Scholarship Program, we will have several matching scholarships from Division available at convention, contact 2nd VP Suzanna Rawlins for information and forms. A full scholarship may be placed anytime during the year. Joyce and Penny LaTaste gave a full scholarship to Jacksonville State University last month, many thanks to them for this thoughtful act!

As always, please contact me if you have any questions or concerns!

Yours in UDC,
Linda Edwards
Alabama Division President
