February 08 Meeting

Officers are installed...here, the officers are sworn in to their respective offices for another year. And, yes, that is a Confederate uniform worn by Senior Vice Commander Mark Steele. Several Camp members had relatives to fight on both sides! They are also members of local Sons of Confederate Veterans camps that had recruitment tables during the show.

February 08 Meeting Robert Dobbs and Mark Kemp almost appear a little too eager to sign up recruits at the Camp's recruitment table! Applications and brochures were handed out to several prospects during this weekend event.
