  From the Alabama Division President, Linda Edwards

May 2015

Ladies,

The 2015 Alabama Confederate History month is over, our Division and many Chapters honored our ancestors and our heritage in a grand manner. CofC Director Tammie Evans lead the children in a truly meaningful service April 25th at Confederate Park. On the 27th at the base of our Confederate Monument at the Capitol, Chair Leslie Kirk and her committee members Pat Godwin and Tonnia Maddox, presented a Confederate Memorial Day program that was perfect from start to finish. We had outstanding attendance, the Division had 150 programs printed and we ran out! I would like to thank everyone who was involved in these two events, you all did a great job!

May is the last meeting month for many Chapters before our Division Convention in September, remember to get your delegates and alternates arranged. Also, please start thinking of items to donate for our silent auction, many nice items have already been pledged. The Convention is really starting to take shape and I hope many of you are planning to attend, September 17-19 in Mobile, details are on the Alabama Webpage on the General UDC Website.

Our Division Flag Project is moving along well, we have received our reorder of the 26th/50th charm, if you need to order one please use the order form on our Alabama Webpage. I had hoped to have the prices for the other 6 charms for this letter, but I haven't received the quote yet, as soon as we get the quote and the prices worked up I will post it to this forum. The charms will hopefully be here by the Convention.

Remember to get your articles and pictures to Brandi Evans for the June Issue of the "TIES" by May 15th. I think we are going to have to start calling it a magazine instead of a newsletter! Many thanks to the Chapters submitting articles and pictures, it is so interesting to see what everyone is doing, plus it's a great way to get some new ideas. 

As always, I am only a phone call or email away, so if you have any questions or concerns, please let me know!

Yours in UDC,
Linda Edwards
Alabama Division President
