Prattville Dragoons SCV Camp 1524 Executive Committee Meeting Tonight
The Dragoons EC will conduct their monthly meeting in downtown Prattville tonight to prepare for the camp meeting later this week and discuss other relevant business. In addition to a report out of the successful Christmas Social and the introduction for our camp meeting scheduled speaker, Dr. Brandon Beck of Mississippi who will provide a presentation on General Nathan Bedford Forrest, we will be a couple other items of interest. The Dragoons have historically not participated in the Prattville Mardi Gras parade but the parade upcoming on January 26th provides another opportunity for a fun time of fellowship and to put the Dragoons and the SCV out in front of the Prattville community. We also have the Semple camp's Lee-Jackson banquet coming up January 19th, the very birthday of General Robert E Lee. The other related item of interest will be our ad initiative for General Lee's birthday. The Dragoons have placed an ad in several local newspapers including the Prattville, Millbrook, Wetumpka and Maxwell AFB circulars for a day (depending on their circulation) around Lee's birthday. Another possibility for expanding the distribution of this information is to advertise on the internet and AL.com has been contacted about a possible ad spot and to submit press releases for the Lee memorial at the state capital on Jan 19th for instance. Moving to internet communication will help further to disseminate information related to the SCV and the Cause to more audiences, furthering Lee's SCV Charge.
