571Re: Revised May 2013 Newsletter - Different
- Jun 11, 2013Gil, I apologize for not replying sooner,
but I do want to let you know that I have read
all of your recent communications, though I never
did locate the attachment you mentioned.
I have been trying to think of suggestions for the online
newsletter and meetings, but I have always thought
that both are exceptional and any improvements
would only be tweaks to already excellent programs.
John and I both agree that alternating meeting locations
between states with early Alford settlements and those
with larger AAFA membership would be better than
choosing one state for all future meetings.
This is despite the fact that Texas and Houston
were suggested, and most of John's family
now lives in Houston.
I have always thought that tours to the lands
where the early Alfords resided would be
as interesting as the tours to local attractions.
They would be more interesting to me, but I do
realize that they are often not near the larger cities
where hotels suitable for meetings are located.
One exception to that was Nashville, but no tours
to Alford lands and cemeteries in the area
were planned even then.
Any way you can work out technologically for you
to participate in the meetings would be great.
We are definitely planning to make it to Raleigh
and very much appreciate the choice of a pet-friendly hotel.
