November Newsletter and Next Meeting: November 20, 20223

The November newsletter can be found by clicking here or under the Spare Parts tab above. 

Our next meeting will be held on Monday, November 20, at the Deep Run Park Recreation Center. The hall will open at 5:30 for silent auction donations and registration and the meeting will begin at 6:30!

Bob Walls, our auction guru, already has in excess of 100 kits and supplies up for auction but we have room for lots more. Be sure to take this chance to gain some "home front" points by decreasing your stash in time for Christmas!

And bring loads of cash and/or a checkbook to the meeting. There will be primo kits available at bargain basement prices. But remember... NO CREDIT OR DEBIT CARDS ACCEPTED. All proceeds will go to the Virginia War Memorial Foundation so come prepared to bid, bid, bid.

Details on the auction and the registration form can be found in the attached newsletter.

Also, and importantly, we will hold our annual chapter officer election. Please print the ballot from the newsletter and bring it with you to the meeting.

See you on the twentieth!
