Christmas in the South - Children of the Confederacy at Confederate Memorial Park
The Alabama Division Children of the Confederacy presented their annual program at Confederate Memorial Park in Mountain Creek on Saturday December 6th. The theme of their program was "Christmas in the South". The program included posting of the colors with a Color Guard provided by SCV Camp 692, Cradle of the Confederacy out of Montgomery followed by pledges to the flags. The CofC creed was presented followed by a welcome by Mr. John Appleton, President of the AL Division CofC. Additional welcomes and greetings were extended by other CofC and UDC and SCV officers including SCV AL Division Commander Gary Carlyle. The Children of the Confederacy then presented the Christmas Program which included songs like "Angels Among Us" and Commander Carlyle led the children in carols and "Christmas in Dixie". Ornaments were placed on a Christmas tree in the Memorial Park chapel there where the program was held and Santa Claus paid a visit giving each child a gift bag with delicious holiday treats inside. The program closed with a Benediction and Retiring of the Colors. A wreath was laid at the Confederate Veterans cemetery across the road. A wonderful Confederate Christmas event.
