Dispatch – October 2013

Compatriots, Brothers and Friends,

Well, with fall comes cooler temperatures, and renewed activity. In this newsletter I will be listing some of what is available to get involved in. I have been working as an assistant to Division Lt. Commander Gary Bray to get our division webpage updated, and it is going reasonably well so far. This activity directly helps the camps as it makes it a bit easier for prospective members to contact them directly. I am also sending out about 45 letters to lapsed members in zip codes around our area to try to interest them in visiting us and giving us another try. Your prayers for this effort are coveted. This could end up being a big shot in the arm for our camp, as well as a few other camps in our area.

In our November meeting we will hold elections for camp officers for the year 2014. If you have been with us long enough to get your bearings and if you believe you would like to serve the camp in some official capacity, then let it be known and/or have someone nominate you. We can just do the nominations and election in that same meeting. As mentioned last month, I would like to propose that we add the position of “Aide-de-Camp”, a person who would be just that, someone whom one of our officers can request help with this or that. This would NOT be an elected office, but would serve at the pleasure of the Camp Commander. Believe me, the Camp Commander and the Camp Adjutant can both use a little help with tasks from time to time. We can bring this up for a vote in the next meeting.

I hope all of you are doing well with all of your endeavors. Please remember to think of relatives and friends who might be good candidates for inclusion in our camp. Also, please pray for past Commander Allen Christian as he is currently dealing with some very serious health issues.

Your Obt’ Servant,
Daryl Coleman, Commander
Rockwall Cavalry Camp
