Dispatch – October 2014


During our September meeting we swore in two new members to the camp, Michael Keith Fisher and Mark Kevin Payne. This will add to the health and vitality of our camp for sure. This year of 2014 has seen an uptick in activity, and for the remainder of this year and going into next year we would like to see this continue, with further growth and more activities for our camp members.

In our November meeting we will be electing, for the year 2015, our Camp Commander, 1st Lt. Commander and Camp Adjutant. In the October meeting, Monday the 13th, our goal is to record nominations for these three offices (as detailed in our Camp Constitution). The 2015 Camp Commander will then appoint other camp members to various positions. As of today, those are 2nd Lt. Commander, and Chaplain. I would like to suggest that we consider adding a Guardian Program Chair, a Color Sergeant, and Aide-de-Camp, if we can find men to fill those positions. There are various other positions possible which other camps sometimes have, and we can address those if there is any desire to look at that.

Remember that the idea is that if the work of running a local SCV camp is divided up and spread out amongst various members, we will all be the better for it and no one or two men will be over worked. So, please consider how you would like to participate and serve the camp going into 2015.

Richard M. Powell, Commander
