Mrs. Cathie Leverette was kind enough to be our roving photographer at our Christmas social on Friday December 9. Just follow the link below and you should be able to see all the pictures she took. Thank you Cathie for sharing these with us!
Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp 1524had over 60 attending their Christmas Social and a most joyful time was had by all. The event was held at the beautiful Buena Vista antebellum mansion which had holiday greenery decorating the exterior. The catered meal was furnished by Smokin S restaurant and included smoked turkey, dressing, sweet potato casserole and green bean casserole along with desserts and beverages. Chaplain Tom Snowden led everyone in singing Christmas carols and also sang himself. 1st Lt. Harold Grooms’ Red Neck Christmas was hysterical especially with Harold dressed in his overalls and carrying a shotgun to dress the part. General Lee egg nog was made again by Tyrone and Carol Crowley with ingredients furnished by the camp officers. Just good ole Southern socializing during the social hour, dinner and afterward was also a highlight of the evening. Thanks to Division Commander Jimmy Hill for attending as well as Division 2nd Lt. Commander Randall Hughey and Brigade Commander Butch Godwin. The Dragoons also welcomed guests from the Henry Semple camp, the Tallassee camp and other camps. Jean Bradley, President of the Cradle of Confederacy Chapter, UDC and her daughter were also in attendance. Quartermaster Myrick and his wife provided the pretty table centerpieces which were drawn as doorprizes along with nice gifts including books, stuffed animals, pictures and a knife set.
Enjoy the photos compliments of Treasurer Leverette's wife Cathie and have a MERRY CHRISTMAS!
