A view of some of the over 100 souls who were in attendance at the February 2000 meeting.   Because of the lack of room, tables had to be removed, after attendees ate, and officers still had to stand to make room for all to hear JJ Johnson.


Historian Ralph Ganis gave a captivating program on the James/Younger Gang. A soon to be member of the Lesley Camp, Mr. Ganis is related to a member of the Gang who was from Union County, North Carolina. Ralph also hails from that same county.

JJ Johnson, Editor-in-Chief at  news web site speaking to a standing room crowd at the February 2000 meeting.  Topic:  It's not a Black Thing.  Johnson was cheered when he acknowledged that the attacks on the flag this year are due to election year pandering and politics.  He went on to state that educated blacks are getting tired of this and aren't buying it any more.

The man who sets the milieu for the camp meetings, Quartermaster Jake English. A stickler for decorum and demanding of his fellow officers Jake makes sure that no visitor or guest at the meeting ever feels alone. Jake just loves a well run meeting.
