Congratulations to Atty Allred: Atty has continued to serve the RSAMCC and RSA community through her talents for decoration and hospitality. She is the first recipient of the RSA Lifetime Achievement award for her continued service and dedication to Huntsville and Redstone Arsenal communities.
What began in 1985 as an opportunity to highlight homes in downtown Huntsville, Alabama, has now flourished into a lifetime of beautification and leadership throughout the community. Atty Allred, then an active duty spouse, collaborated with the Huntsville Garden Club to highlight the historic homes located in the Twickenham District. She viewed this request as a “call to action.” She immediately agreed to decorate the homes, but needed an Army of assistants. She recruited from within; she chose spouses from her husband’s unit and went to work on a Victorian Christmas theme. The community enjoyed this event and the City of Huntsville was so impressed that Atty continued to lead this for many years. Once word began to circulate throughout the communities of Huntsville and Redstone Arsenal, everyone clamored for her visionary and beautiful creations. The Bicentennial Chapel have been under her watchful eye and supervision since the late 1980’s. The chapel is graced seasonally with her divine floral arrangements and full-scale Christmas decorations. In typical Atty Allred fashion, she continues to lead, inspire, and bring beauty and grace to not only her creations, but to all those with whom she serve.
