Upcoming Events for the Prattville Dragoons
Prattville Dragoons EC Meeting on Monday the 6th highlighted upcoming events for the camp. The monthly camp meeting held at the Shoneys in Prattville on Cobbs Ford Road was held on Thursday evening. July 4th the Dragoons plan to participate in the Prattville Independence Day parade with a cart with riders including Donald Wheeler, a World War II veteran, step father of 2nd Lt Commander Stuart Waldo. The theme for the parade will be honoring these veterans of WW II. The Dragoons banner will also be carried by walkers. If you wish to participate, the parade starts promptly at 9am, Monday July 4th. The Sons of Confederate Veterans annual reunion conference will be held Wednesday July 13th thru Sunday 17th. Details and a registration can be found on the SCV national and Alabama division websites. Before June 15th the registration is $45 and escalates to $60 after that date. The Prattville Dragoons will co-host the Old Alabama Town tours on Friday afternoon. Unfortunately for this golfer, the Wednesday June 13th captains choice golf tournament has been cancelled but 2nd Lt. Stuart Waldo can be contacted if interested in golf at the beautiful Robert Trent Jones facility as a small informal get together golf outing is still tentatively planned. This is the Confederacy Sesquicentennial reunion event, a great milestone and a huge event is anticipated complete with tours, meetings, and banquets and even river boat cruises on the Harriett II on the Alabama River.
