Year-End Report Forms Have Been Posted Online!

They have been posted to this website to help all of us get a head start on meeting goals and activities that we could put on our year-end reports for NEXT year!  Study the blank reports and see what your Chapter could do to meet these suggested challenges during the 2019-2020 UDC year.  Maybe our reports next summer will be more complete, but more importantly MS Division will be engaged during the coming year in doing good things in our communities in the name of our beloved UDC.

125th Commemorative Insignia Pin
In celebration of our founding 125 years ago, a new General pin is being offered. This very lovely pin is full of symbolism of our Organization.  The pin has a red ribbon which symbolizes the meeting between our two founders Mrs. C.M. Goodlett from Nashville, Tennessee, and Mrs. L.H. Raines from Savannah, Georgia.

Our Organization has been a mighty force for 125 years, and with the fortitude of our membership we will survive another 125 years. All Daughters are encouraged to order this pin and wear it proudly.  When someone asks you about the meaning of the pin, share the story behind it. Let them know that strong Southern women founded our Organization, and that we now carry the torch.

PLEASE NOTE:  Unfortunately, the original order was delayed at the engraver.  If you paid for this pin and hoped to receive it at the MS Division Workshop in Louisville on Saturday, March 16, please be patient.  For more information, contact Division President Pam Mauldin.
