A Great Annual Meeting

We want to thank both our speakers, Donaly Brice and Fletcher Clark for our Annual Meeting presentations. Did you know that Susanna was wounded in the leg at the Alamo? That was just one little known fact I learned from Brice’s talk. We also heard the premier performance of Clark’s song “The Ballad of Susanna Dickinson” with touching lyrics that capture her search for “a Good Man in Texas – one who deserves a Good Wife.” The ballad lyrics reflect Susanna’s life story and can be read on Fletcher’s web site. Fletcher Clark has just announced that you can download a 12-page bookwith historic images and his Ballad of Susanna Dickinson lyrics to commemorate her 200th birthday this year. Visit his
