Happy Thanksgiving from the Prattville Dragoons

Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp 1524 coordinated a canned food drive as part of our seasonal community service initiative.  Members of the camp brought canned and dry goods to camp functions over the past couple months.  Compatriots Karl Wade, Stuart Waldo and Louis Turner brought bags of food but most every member attending the camp meetings leading up to and including the November event brought many cans of vegetables and dry rice, beans and pasta.  A total of 362 pounds of food were donated and gathered by the Dragoons and Adjutant Sutherland acted as the primary contact and stored the food til the day it was delivered.  The food was taken to the Autauga Interfaith Care Center in downtown Prattville.  AICC provides a food pantry and as well as a thrift store for needy families in the Prattville/Autauga County area and partners with dozens of local churches to extend these goods to those in need while delivering a message of Christ's grace.  The canned food drive was timed to coincide with the Thanksgiving holiday season and will be an annual event for the Dragoons.
