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: Chart It

Yearbooks should reflect what you’ve done over the year. Because of this, information on your meeting dates, hostesses of meetings, programs and speakers should be included. These can be on a graphic calender, or in a meeting section.

Scrapbooks: Programs and Yearbook

Each scrapbook needs to include a listing of the year’s programs and a copy of the yearbook for maximum points in this judging area.
