 FREDERICKSBURG CHAPTER 90 MEETINGS

Happy 65th Anniversary Fredericksburg Chapter 90

A bit of history of Fredericksburg Chapter 90 Fredericksburg Chapter 90, NARCE, National Association of Civil Employees, (the name of our organization at that time) was originally organized on January 20, 1952, with fourteen charter members. The first chapter meeting was held at the Old Post Office building. National dues were $2.00.

Minutes for the period of March 1952 & November 1954 are almost non-existent. In November a meeting was called for the purpose of liquidating the assets of the chapter. Chapter 90 was inactive from November 1954 through 1957. Our chapter was reactivated in 1958 and a new charter was issued April 1, 1959. There were eighteen members when the chapter was reactivated. At that time chapter dues were $1.00 and National dues were $3.50 per year. The Federation assessment was .15 cents per member.

In 1964, the President of the chapter wanted to devise a plan to have the State Convention in Fredericksburg. In April 1965 the state convention was held in Fredericksburg. It was for one day. In October 1966 membership was 102. Chapter 90, again hosted the VFC Convention in 1972. It was held at the Sheraton Hotel and membership was 120 members.

Change on the Chapter 90 meeting in March

   Our chapter meeting for March will be a bit different.  We will be having a joint meeting & tour at the Spotsylvania County Museum, a tour of artifacts warehouse and the new Museum.  The program and location is for Thursday, March 16th, starting at 11:30am.  The meeting is still in the early stages of planning, but it will be at and near the site of the new Spotsylvania County Museum in Spotsy Courthouse.  There is no meeting on Wednesday, March 15th.  We are working with Dick Shrum from the Louisa chapter to have this event along with his Chapter members.   While the details and options aren’t finalized yet, we are looking at an 11:30am arrival with a Subway-style lunch and business meeting, followed by a two-part tour given by Terry Dougherty, Director and Curator of the Museum.  The first part, near the main County building, will be in their “warehouse” containing many Civil War and earlier artifacts of the central Virginia region, which are not yet on display in the Museum.  The second part, about 2 blocks away, will be a tour of the Museum.  While it’s still early, if you are interested in attending let Moe Nolet know as soon as possible nltmaureen@aol.com or 540-370-0036.  She will arrange carpools & with Dick arrange lunch.  More information to come.  This should be something fun & educational and more so for those interested in the Civil War and earlier artifacts.   Hope you will join us.  We are limited on space, so sign up sooner than later.
