The North Carolina Order of Confederate Rose was established in 1993 for the sole purpose of assisting the North Carolina Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans with their historical, educational, benevolent and social functions. Special emphasis is placed on the preservation of Confederate symbols. As there are few rules and restrictions to stifle the creativity of its members, North Carolina chapters are free to focus on the activities important to its members and local SCV Camps along with supporting their efforts on the state and national levels.

The family requests instead of sending flowers they ask for your consideration of a gift in Memory of their mother Mattie Clyburn Rice to the Hospice Home at High Point, 1803 Westchester Drive, High Point, NC 27262.
If you would like to send the family a personal card or gift, please mail them to the Family of Mattie Clyburn Rice – C/O Ron Perdue, PO Box 5641, High Point, NC 27262.
All are invited and also mark your calendars for a second service currently in planning below.
There will a special “Mattie Clyburn Rice Memorial Service” on October 18, 2014 at 2:00 pm to celebrate her life at her final resting place at the foot of her father’s grave, Confederate Veteran Weary Clyburn, as she requested in Monroe, North Carolina. We are now collecting donations for a grave marker for Miss Mattie as a gift to the family to be unveiled at this service as well as programs and red ribbons (in memory of her famous red beret which will be there because we know she will be) for all those attending this special day in October. If you would like to contribute to this tribute to Miss Mattie, please send check payable to Lt. F.C. Frazier Camp 668, note Mattie Clyburn Rice Memorial on check and mail to Ron Perdue, PO Box 5641, High Point, NC 27262. More details to follow as the details are worked out with the decision made just today with the family. We agree with the family, Miss Mattie would love this because she loved attending services with the smell of musket black powder, the ground shaking from cannon fire and the sound of bagpipes.
If you would like to participate in this tribute, we plan on Lady’s in Mourning, Soldiers, Cannons, Muskets and Bagpipes, please contact the Mattie Clyburne Rice Memorial Committee Chairman at firstname.lastname@example.org
Today we share a photo which was another special memory at the December 2012 Meeting only days after Miss Mattie unveiled the Confederate Pensioners of Color Marker on 8th Dec 2012 in Monroe, NC honoring her daddy and nine other brave men. I had the honor of harassing her as being famous while giving her several publications with her on the Cover Page but of course she was too gracious as a true Southern lady to agree that she was famous. We told her we needed to get a “Star” for her on the sidewalk. She just said “ah, Mr. Perdue you’re something else”.
Tonight when we look up in the sky, she is one of the bright “Stars” we see looking down from the heavens above. God Bless Miss Mattie and her family and we thank God we were blessed that she was a part of our lives…
