Upcoming Events Highlighted in the Prattville Dragoons SCV Camp 1524 Dispatch Newsletter

Upcoming Events
Confederate Memorial Park "Living History" Day – 4-5 April 2014.  Excellent educational opportunity for parents and children, and this year there will even be a skirmish on Saturday 5 April (same day as Dragoon picnic).  See http://www.confederatepark.com/ for more about the Park and this event.
Dragoon Picnic, Saturday 5 April 2014, 10 am - 2 pm, at Confederate Memorial Park.  At 9 a.m. we will set flags on all 300+ Confederate graves at Confederate Memorial Park, Cemeteries 1 and 2.  Bring your children and grandchildren, who always enjoy this activity and help us finish in under an hour.  Afterwards, we will all enjoy food and fellowship at Pavilion #2, next to the Confederate Library.  Dragoons will provide paper and plasticware, BBQ and camp stew, and members are asked to bring other dishes, salads, and desserts to share.  We will have a sign-up sheet for food at the March meeting, so check with your wife.
Confederate Memorial Day at the Capitol - 28 April 2014, 10 a.m.  The United Daughters of the Confederacy is hosting the annual observance of Confederate Memorial Day on Monday, 28 April at 10 am at the Capitol Confederate Monument in Montgomery. Plans include period music, an honor guard and a speaker, but the highlight continues to be the Confederate Roll Call. A microphone is passed around the audience and each person attending is allowed to name one of his/her Confederate ancestors, and state his rank and unit.
Confederate Memorial Day at the Dragoon Monuments - 28 April 2014, 6 p.m.  This is our annual service in memory of our Confederate ancestors, held at 6 p.m. for those who may have had to work and thus missed the 10 a.m. ceremony at the Capitol and for the Prattville public to attend.  Location:  4th and Washington Streets, parking lot on west side of Prattville Primary School.
