One of the greatest feelings in the world is having the ability to give back in an area that once poured into you.

On Saturday, February 2, I will have the opportunity to be the Mistress of Ceremony for the Susie Mae Lavender Club Debutante Ball in Aliceville, AL.

Ironically, I became a debutante with the same club while in high school.  So now coming back to serve as an MC for the event is a great honor.

The speaker for the event is also an Aliceville native, Dr. Keneshia McMullen Kirksey.

It is important for those who derive from small areas to return and support them whenever possible, whether it be by service or by donation.  It is said that you should never forget where you come from. It’s pretty hard to forget when you go back often enough. Let that be your story.

And if you’re from Aliceville, feel free to meet us there!
