Upcoming Events for Confederate Heritage for July 2013

Upcoming Events
SCV National Reunion 17-20 July 2013, Vicksburg, Mississippi.  See details at
General Forrest Birthday Party - 13 July 2013, 3:00 pm til ya wanna go home - at Fort Dixie (home of Butch & Pat Godwin).  Menu:  the best Southern-fried catfish this side of the Big Muddy, all the fixins, and ice-cold watermelon served all day long, plus the best Christian Confederate fellowship.  No charge; donation only.  RSVP by Saturday 6 July to Pat Godwin at 334-875-1690 and to get directions to Ft. Dixie.  Y'all come on down to Ole Bedford's 192nd birthday party!
The Prattville Dragoons will conduct our annual "Dixie Butt" fundraiser beginning at the July meeting, so have your budget and contacts in order, and be ready to "buy one and sell one" so that we can achieve our usual good results and have funds to answer the SCV Charge throughout the rest of the year. 
We will have butt tickets available at the July meeting--just tell Communications Officer Crowley how many you want.  Tickets will be the same price as last year--$25--and as always the butts will be cooked by Fatman's BBQ in Prattville.  When you sell the ticket, be sure to get the purchaser's info on the part you keep and leave him/her the stub to use to pick up the butt on 10 August.
Dixie Butt Distribution, 10 August 2013 - The Prattville Dragoons Dixie Butts will be exchanged for ticket stubs from 7-9 a.m. at Fatman's BBQ, Main Street and Memorial Drive in Prattville.
The Dragoons used the proceeds from this fundraiser for camp initiatives to further the Cause including:

$500 donation to the Alabama State Archives for The Flag Preservation Project
Purchase of flags to place on Confederate graves during Confederate History Month
Postage and other expenses for communications including the Camp Dispatch newsletter
