Announcements included the availability of camp stew and BBQ leftover from the Lions Club July 4th sale from 1st Lt Harold Grooms. Larry Spears had a table set up at the meeting providing Dixie Butt coupons to everyone so that they could "Buy One and Sell One" as part of the camp's fundraising efforts. Harold then gave a recap of the first Indian Hills cleanup day, part of a series to restore the cemetery in Prattville, the final resting place of a number of Confederate veterans and Dragoons heroes. Larry Spears then made a special presentation of a recognition certificate from the UDC to his father and Dragoon James Spears for his service as a World War II veteran, one of the greatest generation.
The guest speaker for the camp meeting was the Dragoons own Sam Reid who compared the Northern and Southern economic systems and the differences and animosity which led to the War Between the States. The SCV Closing was then read by Commander Waldo and Chaplain Snowden closed another great camp meeting with a Benediction. The next camp meeting will be held on August 14th, again at the Shoneys in Prattville and everyone is welcome to join us for another educational program and fellowship.
