Prattville Dragoons February Camp Meeting

The Prattville Dragoons will again hold their monthly camp meeting on Thursday, February 14th at 7pm in the Shoneys on Cobbs Ford Road.  Thursday is Valentine's Day and some members will surely bring their wives and significant others before the meeting to enjoy the delicious food at Shoneys including a slice of the delectable strawberry pie, a perfect Valentine's dessert.  All ladies attending the camp meeting will receive a Valentine's flower compliments of the Prattville Dragoons Executive Committee.  The program for February's Valentine's camp meeting will feature a video about Mr.Henry Gober, Dragoon member and Real Son. 

Our presenter will be past Commander Wyatt Willis who reflected on the recent passing of Mr. Gober over the river to be with his Lord at the age of 99.  Mr. Gober was a true Southern gentleman and loved his Southern heritage.  He was a WWII veteran, contractor, cattleman, and always a great spokesman for our Confederate heritage. The last few years, his eyesight was failing, but he knew his Confederate Battle Flag was playing proudly in front of his home where he liked to sit and tell stories about his father.

Henry Gober was an inspiration to those who knew him and a witness thru his Christian faith. Henry was proud to be a Real Son of a Confederate Veteran. Come attend this special meeting of the Prattville Dragoons SCV camp and learn more about the life of this wonderful man thru his own words.
