Commanders, Adjutants and Compatriots, the Arkansas Division Reunion is April 20 & 21, 2012 ,in Little Rock. That is less than six weeks away and we have received only 15 registrations to date. In order to finalize plans for the Reunion and the Division Awards banquet we need for you to send in your registrations; now.
The same goes for Ancestor Memorials ($5 each or 3 for $10). In order to ensure your ancestor’s memorial makes it into the 2012 Reunion Program, please send those in ASAP, also. Ancestors photos as well – there is no charge for placing a photo of your ancestor in the reunion program. Send a .jpg file to me at the address below.
Forms for this year’s reunion have been mailed to each camp commander and those same forms and information may be downloaded from the Arkansas Division website at: http://arkansasscv.org
CAMP REPORTS – Commanders and Adjutants.
Last year we spent two hours of the first business session presenting/listening to camp reports. There were some great ideas presented for camp activities and a long list of camp accomplishments.
However, few of us are able to recall today the accolades that were presented during that business session. Those who were unable to attend were not priviledged to hear the accounts of our many camps. To help improve this, we are requesting each camp to submit a camp report, in writing, this year. Please take time to record the activities and accomplishments of your camp and mail or email them to me and I will place the reports in the Reunion program for 2012. This will serve as a record for future years and it will be a source of information for other camps. This time next year you will still be able to read about the accomplishments of the men of the Arkansas Division. We also encourage you to obtain an extra copy of the program to be donated/placed in your public library or historical society library. Spread the word.
