WV SCV Annual Dues Payment

During June and July each year, the camp adjutants go about collecting annual dues. This consists of $30 for national dues, $5 for division dues, and camp dues, which vary in amount from camp to camp. The $5 collected from each member for their annual division dues are then sent by the adjutant before November 1st to the division treasurer Randy Taylor in one check to 12212 Richwood Dr Hagerstown MD 21740. Failure to pay on time will result in a $5 penalty per member according to the WV SCV constitution. Any questions about this can be sent to Randy Taylor at themanrandy1@yahoo.com or call him at 240-520-8985

Sons of Confederate Veterans support for our nation and the rule of law

These groups are filled with hatred and bigotry, and racism is counter to the American principles of freedom for all citizens. Neither white supremacists nor any other racist group represent true Southern Heritage or the Confederate Soldier, Sailor, or Marine.
