On July 16, the Major General Patrick R. Cleburne UDC Chapter hosted a 10th birthday celebration. The event was held at historic Dodson Memorial Presbyterian Church in Oxford. This UDC Chapter was chartered June 1, 2003. Organizing Chapter President Lynda Lowery, Heflin, is shown with a cake depicting the First National Flag of the Confederacy, also known as the “Stars and Bars” flag, which continues to be the official flag of the United Daughters of the Confederacy since 1894.

Every year this Gen.Cleburne Chapter honors veterans, establishes college scholarships, donates to area libraries, gives to benevolent causes and works to preserve historic sites. The newest member of the Chapter is Peggy Hyatt Cheatwood of Heflin, descendant of William A. Hyatt who served in Co. K 34th Regiment GA Infantry.

At the July meeting, Chaplain Wilma Gosdin of Woodland memorized the four Chapter members deceased this UDC year: Jo Ann Harper, Heflin; Ruth Pirkle Groover, Heflin and Birmingham; Laurelle Hampton, Anniston; and Linda B. Hutchens, Heflin.
