Prattville Dragoons Participate in Millbrook Mardi Gras Parade

The Revelers hosted the annual Millbrook Mardi Gras parade on Saturday February 18th and Camp 1524 field an entry again in this festive parade.  The Millbrook Mardi Gras parade is the largest Mardi Gras parade in Alabama north of Mobile.  The Dragoons were well represented - clouds and some sprinkles in the morning probably affected attendance but dedicated members and guests present included Stuart Waldo with wife Kerri and children, Wayne Sutherland, George and Brent Jenks, Bill Myrick, Bill Gill, Harold Grooms, Karl Wade and Shannon Fontaine in his Confederate sailor uniform. Several hundred mini Battle Flags, recruiting coins, candy and other throws were handed out to the spectators lining Main Street in Millbrook. As always, the Dragoons were well received and the parade announcer introduced our entry as the Prattville Dragoons, SCV, representing Southern Heritage. Wayne and Harold carried the camp banner and Kerri drove her purple Dodge Charger which certainly fit with the Mardi Gras colors. This was another excellent public appearance for our camp and the SCV!
