Meet Miss Martha

She will be going with me to the retreat in November.  She will arrive tomorrow.
Magnolia Park Retreat is a beautiful, handicap friendly facility and is associated with the fine folks at the Red Rooster Retreat in Cullman, Alabama.

We are ideal for craft orientated groups such as quilters and scrap bookers, but we also cater to professional groups for conference meetings, church organizations, and other special events.

We can provide accommodations for up to 28 overnight guests.

Magnolia Park Retreat For overnight guests, we provide a spacious 700 sq. ft. apartment suite that includes two bedrooms, an oversized bathroom, and a full size coffee maker. All of our rooms, along with the entire facility are handicap friendly. In addition, each suite is personally decorated and includes quality bath linens and fine bedding. Each unit has central heating and air conditioning for personal comfort and a ceiling fan in each bedroom. All you will need to bring is your personal items.

All meals at Magnolia Park Retreat are prepared from scratch daily and include the freshest-seasonal ingredients available. Breakfast may include a variety of fresh baked breads, muffins, or homemade buttermilk biscuits. Each lunch and dinner will always include a fresh salad, homemade bread, and irresistible dessert; not to mention the meat and vegetables.

The dining room and work areas are in the Club House. The Club House features a covered drive through for easy unloading and loading of work materials in all weather. There is a primary large work area with vaulted ceilings along with several smaller work rooms. All rooms can be used for breakout groups or retreat related activities.

We are located east of Birmingham in Odenville, Alabama and feel sure you will love our new facility for your next event or group function.

We look forward to hosting your next event at Magnolia Park.

Now, about name tags. First, lets keep this simple. Any method you want, quilted, embroidered, cross stitched, painted, drawn, whatever! Include your board name, given name, and where you're from. Please, big enough so us old folks can read them without staring at your bosoms all weekend! We all will have one vote, ballot box to appear on Saturday afternoon and be counted later that night. Prize awarded at breakfast Sunday


I am going to post information here for the retreat coming up in November.  We have tried to start a pm with everyone but we have run into problems getting everyone on there. I am not sure if I am computer saavy enough to do this but I will try.
