In our November 9 meeting, we were very pleased to host Compatriot James Skelton, a member of the Red Diamond Camp (Texarkana). James presented “A Quick History Trip Through Beauvoir”. James was the escort for his lovely wife, Andrea Skelton.
For our next meeting on January 11, we will be hosting James Neel, a long time reenactor and historian from Sulphur Springs, Texas. James will present an explanation of how the Confederate Army was organized, from top to bottom.
Meetings remain on the second Monday of each month, at Soulman’s BBQ, 691 E. I-30, Rockwall (near SE corner of Ridge Rd. and I-30, next door to Applebee’s). We meet for dinner at 6 pm, and the meeting starts at 7 pm.
As we began a new year, we look back at the roads we have traveled. Some have been smooth and straight, others have been rocky and uphill. But we as a group with the same GOALS have stuck it out and gotten stronger. With this new year we must stay strong and stand united! We need all members to plan to be at January meeting, where we will be swearing in new camp officers. We need to be behind and support all of our camp officers. Your opinion does matter, but you must speak up. We have a goal to keep growing
and KEEPING the TRUTH alive. Bring your family and friends to the next meeting.
DO NOT LET OUR ANCESTORS BE FORGOTTEN!
STAND STRONG * STAND PROUD *STAND UNITED
Rub L. Bass, Commander
