This past weekend on the camp came together and up filled our duty to one of the camps oldest traditions. Thanks to John Ruff and John Carson the Soldiers and Sailors plot is pristine with very work needed to it. The turn out was very good and we accomplished quite a bit. We have been working to clear the underbrush and low hanging limbs from inside the cemetery. We were able to get majority of that done and truly makes a difference.
The more people that come out the more we can do and we encourage you to come out and have a good time with the camp. As always we walked the surrounding streets picking up the trash and keeping up with our part in the Keeping Jacksonville Beautiful Program.
On this work day the camp came together to award some of our members the Presidential Volunteers award. This award is given to those individuals who volunteer their time in various forms of Historical Teaching and attending at cemetery work days. Compatriots David Hallum, Billy Feagle and Chris Elands were awarded the bronze level volunteering 100 hours of service. We appreciate everyone who comes out and this is just a small way to say thank you.
