WHO WE ARE

The Tuscaloosa Belles is a service organization that encourages a 2-year commitment of young women to learn and become involved in the various preservation opportunities in our community. Belles actively participate in the preservation of the heritage of our community as the youngest members of the Preservation Society. They do this actively through education, involvement in community service, and training for leadership.
