We had an amazing month in November with the Granny Blue Events. The Sons of the Confederate Veterans were instrumental in making the ceremonies both moving and accurate. They have a new website at Colonel Woodside SCV. You can follow their events.

We have lots to do next year. Looking forward to interesting times.
