It's been a week since the 2022 Watermelon Festival Parade in Farmerville, Louisiana. I'm finally getting around to posting my pictures.

The Lt. Elijah H. Ward Camp #1971 SCV hosted this great event. It was a beautiful day with great friends in an awesome town.

We were welcomed by a big crowd. There was a lot of cheering and good vibes for our Brothers marching down main street.

Before the Parade, we were fortunate to have a new Trooper sworn into the Louisiana SCV Mechanized Cavalry by Bobby White Brother Stephen Woodall.

Congratulations. God bless Dixie and God bless the Sons of Confederate Veterans.

Yhe 5th annual Cornhole Tournament at Point Place Marina in Natchitoches, Louisiana. A lot of good people came out.

It was an up awesome event. I want to thank the Col. Samuel D. Russell Camp 1617 for inviting us and

Mrs. Debbie for great hospitality. God bless Dixie and God bless the Sons of Confederate Veterans.
