Chapter 1823 Officers for 2013- 2014

VFC President Luther Santiful, VFC Membership Chair BJ Thomas McMillan in front

Chapter 1823 meets the 1st Tuesday of each month, usually at 1:00 pm -- except for the May Spring Luncheon, the September Picnic, and the December Holiday Luncheon, which start at noon. Our membership holds fairly steady at around 270. Because our members are from 5 counties -- Lancaster, Northumberland, Richmond County and parts of Westmoreland and Essex, the meeting location changes from month to month. Examples of past locations are St John's Episcopal Church, Tappahannock; the YMCA, Warsaw; Wicomico Episcopal Church; Lancaster Community Library, Kilmarnock; Northumberland Library, Heathsville. We often meet for lunch before starting the meeting -- this could be a Soup and Sandwich lunch prepared by ourselves, or an order-from-the-menu lunch at Anna's Pizza or Charrito's in Kilmarnock, Luna's in Callao, or the Fat Finch in Warsaw.

There is usually a speaker at each meeting. Past speakers or topics have included local authors, the Civil War, investment strategies, drug interactions, the Middle East, dealing with local varmints (like deer and rabbits), the Haven - a local refuge for abused women, changes in Blue Cross/Blue Shield health insurance, and state and Federal Delegates or members of Congress. Some meetings consist of visits to local museums or wineries for wine-tastings. Details of each meeting are published in our bi-monthly newsletter.

We also get together for various activities - plays by the Lancaster Players or Westmoreland Players, trips to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, boat cruises to dinner across the Potomac, a charter fishing expedition followed by a fish fry. Labor Day weekend we collect donations for Alzheimer's Association, all of which goes to research for Alzheimer's. In 2011, we collected more than $2,600.
