DECEMBER MEETING OF SC SCVMC SQUAD 3 CO A

In spite of inclement weather members of the SC SCVMC Squad 3 Co. A met at the Low Country Clubhouse in

Conway, SC for a time of food, fellowship and planning of upcoming events. During this meeting State Color Sergent

Larry Davis initiated a monetary fund raising that will be used to purchase items for local radio station WAVE 104.1

annual food drive. Our goal for 2019 is a minimum of $2000.00 by November. In memory of and inspired by the work of

Confederate soldiers who rebuilt their communities and cared for friends and neighbors after the war we honor them

 by aiding in feeding the less fortunate in our area. All SCV MC members and friends are urged to aid in this endeavor.
