Prattville Dragoons Annual Picnic at Confederate Memorial Park

In lieu of the regular meeting, in April the Prattville Dragoons hold a picnic at Confederate Memorial Park.  The picnic will take place on Saturday 14 April 2012, 10 am - 2 pm, at Confederate Memorial Park.  The park is located south of Mountain Creek in Chilton County and north of Marbury in Autauga County.  At 9 a.m. we will set flags on all 300+ Confederate graves at Confederate Memorial Park, Cemeteries 1 and 2.  Everyone is invited to attend and bring your children and grandchildren, who always enjoy the flag setting activity as well as the picnic. Our speaker will be Mr. Bob Glennon, local historian from Fairhope, Alabama, who will speak on "The Last Slave Voyage to America".  We will also meet and enjoy dinner with Pastor Chuck Gargan of New Jersey, who owns a sword once owned by a member of Company H, 3rd Alabama, which was the ultimate designation of the Prattville Dragoons.  We will enjoy Fatman’s BBQ Dixie Butts as our main dish provided by the camp, plus sides and desserts provided by our ladies (and in some cases, our men).  We will coordinate side dishes, drink, and utensils through Communications Officer Crowley, so email him at and let him know whether you can attend and what you will bring.  If you are a single man, don’t worry—just come on and enjoy yourself.  There will be picnic tables in the pavilion to sit at, but if you really want to be comfortable bring a folding chair.
Bring the family and enjoy the food and fellowship at the Confederate Memorial Park Pavilion 2 (next to Confederate Library) on Saturday 14 April!  See you there, Dragoons and guests!
