Prattville Dragoons October Camp Meeting
The Prattville Dragoons October camp meeting was postponed from the usual second Thursday date to Wednesday October 26th this month to accomodate a special guest speaker, JM who gave an inspired speech on the Confederate H.L.Hunley, the first submarine to ever sink an enemy ship. A subsequent blog post will provide some of the information from J's presentation regarding this technological marvel of the War Between the States. The announcements from the camp meeting included upcoming events. The Christmas Social will be held Friday December 9th at Beuna Vista with dinner catered by Red's Little Schoolhouse. Cost is $35 per couple, $20 for individuals. This is a great time to fellowship with fellow SCV members from the Prattville and Montgomery camps. Saturday December 3rd is the Prattville Christmas Parade which starts at 4:30pm in downtown Prattville; the theme of the parade is "Cooking Up a Christmas to Remember" and the Dragoons will enter a float. Contact one of the Dragoons camp officers if you wish to participate and/or ride on the float. November 5-6th is a gun show at the Shriners Temple in Montgomery - the Prattville Dragoons will have a recruiting table set up at the show. Also Saturday, the Goodwin's Camp Dixie will host a bonfire which will be timely with the cold front pushing thru. Mid-November the Tallasee SCV Camp will host the annual Battle for the Armory reenactment. Two new Prattville Dragoons members were recognized and welcomed, Mike Williamson of Autaugaville and Chad Rowton of Prattville.
