A special traditional meeting and luncheon for members and friends of Phoebe Yates Pember #2532, United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC) and Laura Belle Stoddard Tent 22, Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War 1861-1865 (DUV) will be held on Thursday, November 10, 2016. The program will be presented by UCSB Professor of History and Dean of Humanities and Fine Arts, John Majewski. Dr. Majewski will talk about a book he is currently writing entitled Economic Creativity and the Coming of the Civil War. The luncheon cost is $32 with a choice of three entrees: Beef tenderloin, Halibut or vegetarian. Contact Debbie Kaska at kaska (at) lifesci.ucsb.edu for more information on location and reservations.
It will definitely be a full agenda including new members initiation and presentation of the budget. One of our two programs will feature a Power Point presentation by President Sue Ramsey.
She’ll be sharing information about her trip to the DUV convention in Springfield, Illinois. Plus, we’ll also have the pleasure of hearing from three of our new members as they introduce us to their Civil War veterans. As Debbie Kaska says, “This is actually one of our favorite programs! Our Civil War Veterans are what brings us together and it’s a chance to honor them.”
Something new! Starting this fall, our tent will have the opportunity to participate in several programs that support our veterans. I’ll be speaking briefly about these projects but since we have so much happening next Friday, I’m attaching a document for you to read prior to the meeting that provides more information. I hope you’ll choose to help with one or more of these projects.
Beginning in September, we’ll be joining forces with the Mitz-Khan-A-Khan Chapter of the D.A.R. in Ventura and the San Buenaventura Women’s Club to collect items for the 60 men and 4 women currently living in the Veterans Home of California-Ventura.
It’s been wonderful to send a check to these veterans each year but by donating items on their wish lists, we can be more actively involved in their lives.
Since the first donation is scheduled for Friday, November 18th, we should start collecting items at our September meeting.
