Members and friends of the S.D.C.,
You are cordially invited to the 1st Annual Southern Reunion of the Sons and Daughters of the Confederacy. This premiere event will be held on Sauturday, 13 October 2007 at Talona Creek Campground in Talking Rock, Georgia. Camping facilities are available for both RV and tent camping, but reservations are encouraged in order to assure yourself a site. Call the campground owner, John Rauch, at 706-253-6143 in order to make your reservations and for rates. You can obtain more information about Talona Creek Campground by visiting their website at www.TalonaCreekCampground.com.
This reunion is slated to be an annual, Southern style event, recurring in the fall of each year. Period style dress is encouraged, although not required. There is a rustic old bandstand on the campground that is available for use by musical groups, either period or contemporary, that may want to do a little pickin’ and grinnin’. And if such groups are good enough, we may just get into a little foot stompin’.
A few festivities have been planned for this year’s event. At 4:00 p.m., there will be an artillery demonstration performed by myself and any other compatriots who may wish to participate. I will be using a 1-1/2 inch bore, handmade cannon for the artillery demonstration. This small scale field piece has received some rave reviews and standing ovations at events in which it has been used. At 6:00 p.m. we will close this year’s event with a genuine, Louisiana-style shrimp boil and party. This will be an excellent opportunity for members and friends to get to know each other and establish networking contacts. A good time will be had by all. The shrimp boil and party starts at six and last until it’s over.
Please RSVP me by 28 September 2007, to let me know if you will be attending and how many will be in your party. I need to know this in order to provide enough plates for the shrimp boil. If you will be bringing a covered dish, please let me know this too. You can RSVP me by email at [email protected] or by calling my cell phone number, 404-312-3460. Or you can snail mail me at P.O. Box 53, Tate, Georgia 30177.
Hope to see you at this year’s Southern Reunion.
For a free South,
K. Steven Monk
