In our September meeting Compatriot Jerry Walden from the Lanham Camp in Weatherford delivered a presentation on some local Rockwall history, specifically dealing with the rockwall associated with the Rockwall area. Jerry is the current camp commander in Weatherford, but originally hails from this part of the state.
In our October meeting, Doug Garnett from the Bob Lee Camp in Bonham will do a presentation on war time medicine in the field.
By way of reminder, we meet at Soulman’s BBQ, Ridge Road and I-30.
Dinner is at 6 pm, meeting at 7 pm.
Lastly, as I mentioned last month, the camp has purchased a Confederate $5 dollar bank note to be awarded to the first compatriot who can bring us 3 new camp members. Allen Christian currently has one under his belt. The value of this note is about $50, and it is in nearly pristine condition and is in a protective sleeve.
