Texas Division President’s Project

“Let Your Light Shine in Dixie”

In October at the Division Convention I handed out flash lights for everyone to 'Let Your Light Shine in Dixie.' It is my theme, but I want it also to be your theme. Select a project where you see a need, for instance:

  • Offer to drive a UDC sister to a chapter meeting
  • Help a prospective with her genealogy               
  • Offer your time to your chapter president           
  • Purchase your insignia                                         
  • Order a marker for your Confederate ancestor    

I'm sure there is something that you have been wanting to do in your Chapter, District or the Division. I encourage you to take that step, and Share your knowledge and love for our Organization with other members or prospective members.

My President's Pins have arrived. They also will 'Let Your Light Shine in Dixie.' The pins are $30 and I will have them at Forum. If you would like to order a pin by mail, send me a $33 check made out to Texas Division Treasurer at:

Texas Division President's Project
405 Walthall Road
Newton, TX 75966-4004

The proceeds from these pins go towards my project - endowing our Texas Division Scholarships, beginning with the Barthold Scholarship.

These pins may not be worn on your ribbon; however, they may be worn with evening dresses at Convention, with jeans at a cemetery clean-up, at your chapter meetings or at the grocery store. They may be purchased for a speaker's gift and are not limited to UDC members. So Daughters, purchase a pin and let's light up Dixie with our accomplishments.

There is also a new item to support the President's Project! We now have a "Let Your Light Shine in DIXIE" Denim Shirt for sale - download the order form HERE
