Beta State Weekend of Wonder

It’s happening October 7-9.
It’s going to be really fine.
So go ahead and save these dates.
Because it’s going to be great!
To enjoy Northeast Alabama’s natural beauty,
That’s going to be your duty.
Wearing blue jeans and your most comfortable shoes,
That’s the attire that you should choose.
So what’s this all about?
It’s Beta State WOW 2016, without a doubt!

Please join Beta State Corresponding Secretary, Marion Hodges, and me, along with our Rho chapter sisters, for Beta State’s WOW  to be held on October 7th-9th in the Scottsboro/Woodville area in beautiful Jackson County, AL. in Northeast AL.  We’ll have supper and a DKG sing-along plus some easy crafts on Friday night, October 7. Saturday morning, October 8, will find us touring the spectacular Cathedral Caverns near Woodville. 

After lunch, we’ll head to Scottsboro for shopping at the famous UnClaimed Baggage.  Late afternoon will have us touring my family’s farm near New Hope, and watching the soybean harvest. We’ll have a brief tour of our family’s home place that dates from the 1880’s. After supper, my husband, Charles, a 4th generation farmer and the great grandson of a Confederate veteran, will give a talk on the Civil War in Jackson/Madison/ Marshall Counties. We’ll spend both nights at the Scottsboro Hampton Inn.  Sunday morning, October 9, we’ll be at Woodville Baptist Church for a brief devotional.

Cost will be $40 per person, and registration will be limited to 40 Beta State members, so make your plans to attend soon. The registration form is below. Deadline to register and book your hotel room is September 16. Cost for the hotel is $89 a night plus tax. This is in addition to your WOW registration cost. After September 16, the room rate will increase. 

Looking forward to seeing you October 7-9!

Beta State 1st Vice President
