Brooksville Raid

Brooksville, FL

The John T. Lesley Camp set up a prominent display on Sutler's Row at this year's Brooksville Raid.  The display included the Camp Store, Highlights of the Memorial Project, the African-American Display Boards, and the Rifle Raffle.   The Camp recruited 2 legionnaires for the camp, and geneterated interest in membership from visitors from as far away as Jacksonville,Key West and Pensacola.   People were thrilled to see us there, especially a SCV member visiting from Beliz, Central America.  The display is truly one of the most elaborate put togeather by any SCV camp.
