Dragoons in Prattville 4th of July Parade

SCV Camp 1524 participated in the Prattville 4th of July parade yesterday with an entry including two golf carts and five additional walkers.  Dragoons included Commander Stuart Waldo and son Forrest, Adjutant Wayne Sutherland and former Brigade Commander Bill Myrick.  Bill walked with his wife Peggy and threw candy to the children lining the entire parade route down Court Street, Main Street and Northington.  Stuart's entire family also participated including wife Kerri and her father and all the little ones who rode and threw candy and handed flags to the parade spectators.  3rd National Confederate mini flags were handed out and these again proved immensely popular with kids rushing the golf carts and all 250 flags were gone midway down Main Street as children and adults alike screamed for them.  Dave Thompson, former member of the SCV Semple Camp in Montgomery, and his wife also participated.  The golf carts were adorned with U.S. flags, Confederate Battle Flags and even a Bonnie Blue.  Kerri's father had music playing including Dixie accompanied by each U.S. military branch service songs.  The weather was wonderful in the morning during the parade with low humidity and temperature in the seventies, a welcome respite from the oppressive summer heat.  Another enjoyable parade with the Dragoons participating in a great community event and getting the Confederate Battle Flag out in front of our neighbors, following the Charge.
