The upcoming year will be an exciting one for the club, as it prepares to celebrate its 10-year anniversary, kicking things off with a leadership retreat early next month in Springville. The club is also planning a trip to the ballet in November, a Broadway play in April, several college tours, and the Selma Commemorative March. Members also participate in monthly workshops and community service projects.
According to club adviser Vikki Floyd, “This will be the best year we’ve had since the club’s inception. We have about eight trips planned, our Debutante Ball will be the most elegant event Anniston has ever seen, we have a 10-year reunion planned with former Legacy Club members, and we will be starting three new clubs this year in Leeds, Montgomery and Birmingham. We have also had inquiries from people in Atlanta, Albertville and Maryland.”
