Dispatch – May 2013

Compatriots of the Rockwall Cavalry Camp #2203,

Greetings. Well, the big event in Palestine is now behind us, and it was very, very well done. There were four us from the Rockwall camp there, and Marc Robinson afterwards called me to offer his thanks for our participation.

We are still experiencing a little growth here and there, but I, for one, would like to see more. So, let all of us remember that in order to help us do this, we need to invite friends and relatives to come visit our meetings to see what we are about.

It is now official. Our Brigade Commander, Gary Bray, will be running for 2nd Lt. Commander of the Division at our Division elections in June. All men running for election are good brothers, but of course I feel I must support Gary in his election, as he has done a superb job running our Brigade for the past several years.

As mentioned before, Tom Wilson, Aaron Wilson and I will be selling our challenge coins at the division reunion at Tanglewood Resort in June, and we hope to raise some much needed funds for the camp while there.

At our next regular meeting (Monday, May 13) I hope to be raising some ideas for new camp activities. Each of you are encouraged to bring some of your own ideas to the table for consideration.

Lastly, I am asking you to give serious consideration to the possibility of moving our camp meetings over to the Cotton Patch restaurant, which is just down the street from our current meeting place. I visited there a few days ago, and I truly feel it would be a nice place to start having our meetings at. We will discuss at the next meeting and possibly take a vote on it.

Oh, and I wanted to add that you can call me on the phone if there is anything you need to discuss. My phone number is listed at the end of the newsletter.

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