Lisa Pritchett accepted donations for the UDC Veterans project, thanking all of the ladies for their generous giving and reminding all of the ladies that the June donations were shave gel and disposable razors.
The cleaning of the UDC monument on Ocoee Street was discussed — it was waiting for an inspection after the damage incurred from the recent accident.
The Military Service Awards presentation was on June 1 at Kinser Church of God, honoring 16 veterans. The June 28 tea (to replace the UDC June meeting) is set at Kinser COG at 1 p.m.
Robin Ramsey provided refreshments, including an RC Cola and a Moon Pie.
UDC officially welcomed a new member, Helen H. Riden, with her membership certificate.
The meeting concluded with an interesting display and talk provided by Marilyn Kinne on the tradition of placing stamps on envelopes to mean certain things such as “Did you know that placing a stamp upside down means ‘I am not free,’ and was used between lovers as an unspoken message?” A stamp placed upside down and tilted to the right meant “My heart is Yours.”
The UDC would love to have people join the organization to perpetuate the memorial and the historical, educational, benevolent and patriotic objectives of the organization. Contact Lisa Pritchett for more information, at 423-584-1203 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
