On April 20, 2013 many Avengers turned out for our first annual Confederate History and Heritage Month Memorial
Service in front of the court house. Josh and Brett Griffin were the Color Guard. Byran Britt laid the wreath.
Most of the Camp's officers were present along with the three Hall brothers, and Frank & Myrna Sharon.

employed as an advertising consultant. He spoke on his Confederate ancestry and is a SCV member. He assisted the
Camp with the advertisement for Confederate history month.
