My Illustrious Brothers and Sisters of the Dr. G. Wesley Allen Council of Deliberation
and the Annie P. Rogers State Grand Assembly
God's blessings be upon you
God has brought us this far in this year by faith. Now we are again at the doors of Christmas and another New Year.
Fortunately for us all, members of the Council of Deliberation and State Grand Assembly, have recognized that, without questioning, we do not progress. Without Debate, we do not grow.
In the past, the Council of Deliberation and State Grand Assembly have been instrumental in assessing the problems of the African American Community and when the goal has been worthy, in helping us to plant our feet on the road to progress and keep moving forward. As we move into Christmas and another new year, may we ever keep moving forward.
May God continue to bless and keep you and your families, and may you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
