Camp meeting August 10th at Treasure's on the square in Quincy.
At the camp meeting we discussed and appointed a committee to gather facts of operating the Dixie Land Trading Company as a continuing source of revenue for our camp and The Heritage Defense Fund.
Also discussed was the "road cleanup" our adopted hiway. We need to set a cleanup date of either the 28th of August or the 4th of Sept. Need member input on this, so that the majority of compatriots can be present to help. Please email me with the date you prefer.
The Southern Cross that was stolen from the Eastern Cemetery was recovered. I have sand blasted it, primed, and repainted it. It will be placed in concrete this time to prevent future thefts.
The Lee-Jackson Banquet was discussed. Folks we still need a place to hold it
Compatriot Paul Hurst said that he might know someone who can do the Sonar (X-ray) of the Confederate cemetery at Eastern so that we might find out exactly how many Confederate Soldiers are buried there.
