On a cool clear Saturday 10 December, members of Camp 1524 participated in the Salvation Army Kettle Bell Ringing at Winn Dixie in Prattville to raise money for this worthy charity. Many thanks to compatriot Karl Wade who suggested this community service project and organized the volunteers into shifts. The kettle ringing is the primary fundraiser for the great work that the Salvation Army does including community shelters and kitchens and disaster relief all advancing a Christian message of giving. The kettle the Dragoons manned on December 10th raised over $1405 in donations, a fantastic total. Over 85% of donations made to the Salvation Army go directly to needy beneficiaries.
Pictured below are Wayne Sutherland, Louis Turner, Larry Spears, Edward Morgan, Bill Branch, Stuart Waldo, Bill Myrick and Karl Wade. Also participating but not pictured was Ryan King. Thanks to all who participated. This was a great way to get in the spirit of the season as we met many gracious, friendly and generous members of the Prattville community who cheerfully donated or at least gave us a smile and a "Merry Christmas!”
