2010 Divison Convention Historical Evening Speaker

Now that the 2010 Oklahoma Division Convention call has been issued, I’m excited to announce our President’s choice for Historical Evening program speaker. The selection process kicked into high gear in October, when discussions between Division President and Historian were opened. Though Mary’s selection, from three “finalists”, came last month, I wanted to be sure I wasn’t letting the cat out of the bag.

Colonel Bernard R. “Bernie” Cooper, Western Artillery Brigade, CSA will join us, in uniform, for Historical Evening to share his love of Confederate Flags. The Oklahoma Graves Registration, SCV Officer has plans to have something special for each and every one of us. The program promises to be interesting and lively.

Please plan to attend Historical Evening and bring family, friends and Confederate- minded individuals to celebrate with us. If you have an outfit with “Confederate Flavor”, consider wearing it that evening. We are not fashion police, but I know more than just a few of us have Native attire, long skirts, petticoats, and yes – even hoops! The lovely ladies planning and hosting Convention have made arrangements to accommodate everyone interested in History to attend and enjoy the evening with us.

Yearbooks: Officers

All officers need to be included. They should be listed in order by General, Division, and Chapter. Don’t forget their address information. Basic lists will not qualify for full judging points.

Yearbooks: Title track #1

For full point potential, be sure to list your chapter and division, the organization (United Daughters of the Confederacy), UDC colors, as well as other items posted in the General guidelines and blogged here tomorrow.

Items of interest to UDC, Division, or Chapter are all things that can be placed in your Scrapbook. Material should be pertinent to the current year, though not specifically pertaining to your particular Division or Chapter.

Scrapbook Title Pages

Title pages can be many things to many books. For judging, a scrapbook title page must contain the following for full credit: Chapter/Division, as applicable; “United Daughters of the Confederacy; location; and current year.

This Historian also suggests remembering that it is the first book page anyone sees. Once past the cover, this is usually your first impression. Look at it for balance and don’t over crowd it. Yes, there are things that are required, but don’t go overboard with things you could move to other pages. Effectiveness, ease on the eye, and theme may all go into judging decisions in categories where most of the scrapbooks achieve a perfect statistical score.

Scrapbook Cover Requirements

By following the guidelines, you can earn up to 10 points for correct covers –

If UDC insignia used (Division insignia and unofficial graphics may not count toward points – check with your Division), must be at top of cover with no printing above. Cover must include –

  1. Chapter
  2. “United Daughters of the Confederacy”
  3. location
  • current year optional
  • nothing may be glued, taped, or attached

Backlist: Scrapbook, Yearbook and Newsletter idea

Thelma Blackburn, President Cherokee Chapter #2737 suggests we all put chapter contact information for each of the Division Chapter’s in the yearbook. Whether you are preparing a scrapbook, yearbook, or publish a Chapter newsletter, this information can be a welcome addition. (Division Specific Information Deleted) Please feel free to share this information and be “front and center” if you have any ideas or tips that can help your sister Daughters in preparing for competition in 2009 :o)

Backlist Introduction

Greetings once again!

Since June, I’ve been sharing lots of things with my fellow Oklahoma Division Daughters via our State-only e-list. All information I’ve shared in the past will slowly be listed here, unless is concerned a specific date that has already passed. Each of these posts will be titled with Backlist for ease of sorting. When this information was posted on the Oklahoma e-list will be listed at the bottom of each post. As the e-list doesn’t archive, I hope Oklahoma members will use this as their history archive for the list.
