 2016 Convention Call

 

 

  

From the Alabama Division President, Linda Edwards

     August 2016

Ladies,
WOW! Reading the President Chapter Reports shows our Division has been very busy this past year.  It is so interesting reading these reports because each one is unique and each one tells a different way our Chapters are honoring our ancestors and our heritage.  Keep up the good work in the future!
 
Our convention is fast approaching, please remember to make your room reservations by August 22, to get the UDC rate.  If you need a copy of the Call, it can be found on the Alabama page of the UDC website.  I have been posting tidbits about our host city Decatur, on the Alabama UDC webpage, and will continue to do so until convention.  I want you all to feel at home when you come to the River City!  I hope many of you will come early on Thursday to enjoy the sites in our area, and especially to visit the sites in Decatur.  I will post a list of interesting places to visit and see in Decatur, about a week before convention.  Remember to bring any items for the silent auction, we already have several nice things that have been donated.
 
I am so glad Pat Godwin is keeping us up to date on the Demopolis statue that was damaged.  Lets all pray that the Mayor will have the rifle replaced and the soldier repaired and placed back on the base.  I believe he will, but a few prayers sent up can't do anything but help!
 
I attended my first General CofC Convention in Chattanooga last month, and enjoyed it very much.  Our Division had 4 CofC Children who attended, six UDC members and one guest. It's been several years since we had this large of a group!  Congratulations to Director Tammie Evans and the Division CofC on winning several awards!!
 
As always, if you need to contact me, please call or email.  I am working daily on convention, and it's nice to take a break and chat with a UDC lady, so if you need anything, just call!  Looking forward to seeing many of you at the convention!
In UDC love,
Linda Edwards
Alabama Division President
