Prattville Dragoons Camp Dispatch News

The following was highlighted in the recent edition of the Dragoons Camp Dispatch:

Camp News
Long-time Dragoon Harry Rawlinson Encourages Dragoons - Following is an excerpt from a letter received from Harry Rawlinson, as mentioned last month now in an assisted-living home in Alexander City:  "I am now settled in The Meadows Assisted Living Facility in Alex City, Alabama.  I will try to write some things from my early times when I joined the Dragoons.  If I can remember!  You all keep up the good work you have done and I know you will continue to do so.  I never imagined the Dragoons would become so popular and so respected as it has become under the leadership, membership, and work of all Dragoons.  Our Ancestors are Proud!!!  Well Done!!!" --Harry Rawlinson
Dixie Butt Distribution and Indian Hills Cemetery Workday, 16 August 2014 - Dixie Butts will be exchanged for ticket stubs from 7-9 a.m. at Fatman's BBQ, Main Street and Memorial Drive in Prattville.  Tickets will be distributed beginning with our July meeting, and each member of the Dragoons will be asked to “Buy One and Sell One”.  This is our only fund-raiser of the year, and the proceeds allow us to continue successfully to answer the SCV Charge.  This is also a workday at Indian Hills Cemetery, so after you pick up your butts get your gloves and hat and head out there.  This will be the third workday following the initial cleanup in June and the next scheduled on August 2nd.
Communications Officer Will Keep Low Profile This Month - Your editor and Communications Officer Tyrone Crowley will be virtually unavailable for the next couple of weeks as he has two young grandsons visiting from California and they will require all his energy and attention!  Dragoons will look forward to Tyrone's renewed participation following some time with his family.
