A few notes for our July "Vacation Month"

The Black Horse Camp will be participating in the Old Town Warrenton "First Friday" event Friday, August 2nd.  The theme for the night is  Dog Days. The schedule is the same as always: We will set-up at 5:00 PM. I will be there with the booth stuff at that hour. The event officially begins at 6:00 PM and runs until 9:00 PM (or so).

We have been informed that the spaces have been renumbered and reduced in size. Assistance setting up at 5:00 PM will be greatly appreciated as it takes a few people to set up the booth and tables and it will probably be warm. Late help to tear down is also appreciated. I hope to see you there.

You should have or soon will receive in the mail correspondence from Ted Crockett, Adjutant Virginia Division, SCV. This is the 2019 Virginia Division membership renewal statement. Your 2019-2020 dues for National, Va. Division, and Black Horse Camp #780 are listed. Please complete this form, write a check payable to Black Horse Camp #780 for the total amount, and return the form and check to    James D. Glenn, Black Horse Camp # 780, 13602 Union Church Road, Sumerduck, VA 22742. ASAP.  

An envelope has been provided with a window so that Jim's address will show.  It couldn't be easier. Promptness will be greatly appreciated. Late fees are imposed after September 1st this year by National.

If you have not received a packet of tickets for a chance to receive a gift of four passes to the Fall International Gold Cup Races, please contact Lory or me to acquire them. We are hoping that you can offer these tickets to family and friends for a donation of $5.00 for each ticket to the camp. You may want to donate yourself. Tickets come in packs of ten. This is a great fundraiser for the Camp and will be used to replenish our resources available to set and maintain graveyards and tombstones, along with our other activities.  The drawing for the winning ticket will be August 16th, so sales will end in early August.

Don't forget: There will not be a Camp Meeting in July. our next one is August 6th at the American Legion post in Warrenton.
