Prattville Dragoons SCV Camp 1524 Christmas Parade Entry

Saturday morning officers of the Dragoons gathered to assemble the float for our camp's entry for the Prattville Christmas parade.  In attendance were Commander Chris Booth, Brigade Commander Bill Myrick, Color Sgt Larry Spears, 2nd Lt Stuart Waldo, Treasurer Billy Leverette, Adjutant Wayne Sutherland and Comm Ofc Tyrone Crowley.  Commander Myrick brought his trailer with bales of hay for seating and a nice new Honda generator for powering the strings of Christmas lights.  The float included a Christmas tree with garland with a Battle flag atop in lieu of a star or angel.  The front of the float had five Confederate flags including the Battle flag and the Alabama state secession flag.  The side frames of the trailer were adorned with tinsel and lighted strings of garland.  The trailer was finished and flags were stowed until later when the float would be moved to the starting queue prior to the parade.  An enjoyable time of fellowship in preparation for the parade festivities to follow later in the evening.
