You are cordially invited to attend the Annual Lee-Jackson Banquet in Louisville, MS on FEBRUARY 10 at 7 p.m. at Lake Tiak O'Khata. Our guest speaker will be Al Arnold who wrote the book "Robert E. Lee's Orderly, a Modern Black Man's Confederate Journey. He will bring copies of this book and a new one he has published.

Let the members of your Chapter and friends who would be interested know about this please.  Looking for a big group.  I have enjoyed arranging this meeting with Al, and I know all of you will enjoy it, too.  Come even if you have heard him before.

"There has been a conflict and Al Anderson will not be able to be with us on January 27 and we are rescheduling our Lee Jackson Banquet to February 10 at 7 p.m. at Lake Tiak O'Khata. I hope this will not inconvenience any of you and maybe it may help in your scheduling too so you can make plans to come on this date. I apologize for the delay for the mistake was made by me because I looked at the calendar wrong and gave Al the wrong date."
