  From the Alabama Division President, Linda Edwards

October 2015


The Alabama Division has NINE new scholarships that were received this year. Six were the matching scholarships from our convention, and three were placed by individual members. This just shows how much our Division cares about the education of our students. Many thanks to the Chapters and individuals who placed these scholarships!

We have raised the $13,896.00 to conserve the 26th/50th flag at the Alabama Archives, the check will be presented to Dr. Bob Bradley later this month. Again, this could not have been done without the individuals, Chapters and Districts, many thanks again!

This year Dr. Bradley has picked the 18th Alabama Infantry flag for us to conserve, the cost is $13,586.00. This project has already been kicked off, if you go to the Alabama Division webpage on the UDC website, there is a form you can download to order your 18th flag charm and also a charm of Douglas aka "Hump", for a special price of $35.00 for both. If you would only like the flag charm or the 18th flag charm the cost is $20.00 per charm. The special $35.00 price will be good thru December 1st, after that the charms will be $20.00 each. Please mail your form to Ann King, Flag Chair. The charms will be delivered at Winter Board, which is January 16th, in Montgomery.

The General Convention is a little more than a month away, if you are planning to attend, please let me know. I have several items with Alabama themes that I want to give to the Alabama ladies who attend, and I want to make sure I bring enough with me for everyone.

I have certainly enjoyed my first year as your Alabama Division President and I look forward to this year! I know the 2015~2016 year is going to be very special for our Division!

Yours in UDC,

Linda Edwards
Alabama Division President
