From the Presidents Desk

This is my first letter to our membership, as I assume the role of President of the Civil War Round Table of Fredericksburg, Inc.

My sincere thanks to our past President, Roger Leturno, for providing me with excellent guidance and advice as we begin the 2022-2023 year. His leadership, coupled with the guidance from the members of our Board, will be instrumental in enjoying a successful and interesting year ahead.

I would like to welcome Mr. Russell “Chip” Willis as the new Vice President of our Round Table. Chip has been a member of the Round Table for many years, and he brings not only the corporate knowledge of years past, but fresh ideas to increase our membership and suggestions for future programs. Welcome aboard, Chip!

On Wednesday evening, the 27th of July, Mr. Geoff White performed his program of “Civil War Music” at Chatham Manor. Despite the threat of thunderstorms, the weather broke in our favor, and we (about fifty members) enjoyed an excellent program of musical entertainment provided by Geoff on his fiddle and guitar and his vocal renditions. At the conclusion of the event, one member of the Round Table suggested that Geoff attend one of our meetings and perform his musical selections for us all; an excellent suggestion that we will investigate.

The September Meeting

(UMW Jepson Alumni Executive Center, 1119 Hanover Street, Fredericksburg, VA 22401)

The presentation for our September 28th meeting, Civil War Medicine, will be made by Ms. Paige Gibbons Backus. Paige is a graduate from the University of Mary Washington, with a BA Degree in Historic Preservation. In the public history field for more than 10 years, Paige’s interests are on educational programming and operations, working at several historic sites throughout Northern Virginia, including Gadsby Tavern Museum, Sully Historic Site, and the Ben Lomond Historic Site. Paige currently serves Prince William County as the Historic Site Manager at Brentsville Courthouse Historic Centre (a 19th century courthouse and jail complex, and the Lucasville School – a one room African American school house).

As we head toward the month of September, and our first meeting on the 28th of that month, I will remind everyone of the increase in dues for the 2022-2023 year. Here are the new dues costs:

Regular Membership - $60.00

Regular Membership - (with dual CWRT membership) $50.00

Family Membership - (all persons of the same household) $110.00

Family Membership - (with dual CWRT membership) $100.00

Gift Membership - (offer only during the last six weeks of the year) $40.00

Dinner Reservations are required, so please make your reservations by 1 p.m. on Monday, 26 September 2022, by signing up on our website, or calling Ms. Beth Daly, at 540-361-2105, or emailing info@cwrtf.org. *The cost of our dinners has now increased to $35.00 per person.

At the September meeting I hope to introduce two new initiatives: First, two proposed “Silent Auction” Events, one in November 2022 and the second one in April of 2023. Secondly, we will have a “Suggestion Box” available at the entrance table to the Jepson Center Ball Room, to receive innovative ideas and recommendations for potential future events and guest speakers. Pads and pencils will be at every table to help with your suggestions.

In closing, I look forward to meeting with you and especially with our new members of the Round Table on the 28th of September 2022.

Warmest Regards,

Major Bruce H. “Doc” Norton, USMC (Ret)

President
