The Adventures of Hat
Shortly after the Southeastern camping Unit was chartered a significant event happened - Hat was born. The date was February 18, 2014. Wes Hurner of A&W Designs took our logo and converted it to one that could be embroidered. Hat was the first of it's kind, but the number continues to grow as the unit expands. Hat has many brothers and sisters and also a cousin - "Shirt". Cousin Shirt is actually older than Hat by a month. Then along came "Flag" to be flown at all gatherings so folks will know who we are. Long lost second couson Banner found it's way back to the SECU family for a family reunion. Hat, Flag, Banner and shirt are always up for adventure as you can see below. We hope that you enjoy following their adventures while traveling the world. If you have pictures of Hat, Banner, Flag or Shirt in action, please send them to SECU Webmaster and they will be added to this page.
