During the Army meeting at the Memphis Reunion, Commander McCluney announced that an AoT workshop would be held in Athens, Alabama in the upcoming months. I am pleased to announce that the meeting will be held on February 24th, 2018 at the Revival Building in downtown Athens. Varied topics will be discussed including, SalesForce, how to cope with Confederate negativity, Community involvement and others. The cost of the event is $20 and this includes lunch. Due to caterer constraints, lunch reservations will be cut off on January 24th. After January 24th, the cost will be $5, which does not include lunch. Food sites are nearby in walking or driving distance.
On Friday, the 23rd we will have a Jambalaya Supper, prepared by our Commander in Chief Tom Strain. This will be held at the Trinity – Fort Henderson site. Donations will be accepted in lieu of a ticket price. The profits from this event will go to the restoration effort of Fort Henderson and the Confederate Museum at Elm Springs. See below for information about Fort Henderson.
A registration form is attached. Directions to both sites will be posted on the Alabama Division website, alscv.org as well as the AoT Facebook page. Updates on the meeting and topics will be added to the sites. We look forward to seeing you in Athens! The Host Hotel will be the Hampton Inn. It is located at 1222 Kelli Drive, Athens, AL. 35613 Just off I-65 behind the Cracker Barrel.
