Hosted by Ervin & Barbara Garnto, near Scott, GA (location of our winter drill of January 2012). This Memorial Service is for all soldiers that have passed on.  Special honor is paid to our re-enactor brothers and sisters who have departed this life - a list that sadly grows longer with each passing year. Many of us attend memorial services all year long to remember and honor Confederate soldiers. This is an opportunity to remember our brothers and sisters who actually sat around the campfires with us and stood in line of battle, sharing the good times and the bad. Uniforms are certainly encouraged but not mandatory.
The Garntos would like very much for anyone that can and will to come and help with this awesome event.  They will be attending a graduation service for their grandson earlier in the day but said they would be at the homestead around noon or so. A meal will be served in the afternoon (about 2:30-3PM) for all that attend.  The memorial service will follow as the cool of the evening begins to set in.
There will be signs at each turn from the caution light in Scott, GA by the big white church {SCOTT BAPTIST CHURCH}; come and get a blessing. Those wishing to stay over Saturday night are welcome to do so.
