The Ploughboys have erected a sign our new office at the intersection of Wade-Stedman Road and US Hwy 13. The project was directed by Quartermaster Dwight Lovick (shown on the left), along with Commander Ken Bell, and property owner, Thomas Williams. The Logo is the original design of Camp Member, A. J. Belanger, owner of Belanger Signs & Graphix. It was painted by Ian Mayhew.
W. S. Jackson has been elected to serve as Commander of the Cumberland Plough Boys for the next year. The Annual Meeting of Camp 2187 occurs every January and culminates in the election of officers for the next year. Past Commander Mark Whitley completed his second consecutive term which is the most allowed by Camp By-Laws.
Joining Commander Jackson on the Executive Council is 1st Lieutenant Commander Ken Bell, 2nd Lieutenant Commander David Vinson, Adjutant Mark Whitley, and Judge Advocate Fitz Johnston. The Judge Advocate is an appointed position and serves as the fifth member of the council when the Past Commander holds another elected position or is unable to fill the position.
Commander Jackson has already made the following appointments:
Chaplain – Greg Maxwell
Color Sergeant – Mike Willis
Quartermaster – Dwight Lovick
Assistant Quartermaster – Jackie Ware
Assistant Quartermaster – Mack Eason

In our business meeting we will be discussing our October 6th field trip to Charleston, Camp Dues, and the evolution of the website and the Confederate Soldiers Project.
