Presidents Corner


March 2017 Program

Last month's program was on the selected letters and papers by Maj. Eugene Blackford, CSA. These letters were numerous and detailed and not only described battles but also camp life, food, foraging, the hardships of the picket line and marches.

National Park Service Intern

Emily R. Crawford has been assigned by Greg Mertz, Supervisory Historian with the Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park, to the internship sponsored by our round table. Emily is from Johnson City, Tennessee, and will graduate from East Tennessee State University this coming December. She is a history major who aspires to become a professional historical interpreter at either a state or national park. We look forward to meeting Emily at our May 2017 meeting and sponsoring her internship. 
 
Books, Brochures and Community Contacts

Thanks go to Joe Haydon and Mike Burns for their donation to the roundtable of books and CDs for our door prize drawings. Our new brochures are available at the meetings and have been distributed throughout the city retail establishments, libraries and museums. They have also been distributed to the History Department of the University of Mary Washington for dissemination to the students. Since the brochures are dated, i.e., show the programs, we have also had rack cards printed which are permanent in nature. Front Porch publication will contain an ad for our roundtable in each month's publication. Notices of our meetings are printed in History Alert, The Civil War News newspaper, North South Traders Civil War magazine and the History Calendar of the Town & County Section of The Free Lance-Star.

New Webmaster

April is the debut of our new Civil War Round Table of Fredericksburg website. Roger Leturno has been working with Non Profit Dynamics to develop an appealing and user friendly site for our members and site visitors.

At the click of a mouse you will be able to update your membership profile, download Newsletters, browse photos from past events, find future events and much more.

Roger will give an overview of the website and show how to navigate through it at our April meeting. Remember, the refinement process is ongoing and will continue to improve only through your feedback and ideas.

Heritage Awards

The Heritage Awards Committee, chaired by Fred Sisk, will be making recommendations for our club for donations of funds to a certain heritage group or groups before the end of this program year.

New Members and Roster

Congratulations and welcome aboard to our new member, Dale Hundley. Please note that the bylaws provide that for one joining the roundtable after April 1 of any year, that person's dues payment also pays for the following program year. We have consistently had guests at our meetings. Some are members' guests and some come on their own. Please make our new members feel at home and our guests welcome by introducing yourself and inviting them to sit at your table. Please bring your friends and acquaintances as guests to our meetings and solicit their membership in order to continue the growth of the club. We now have 94 members and it would be an excellent completion of this year to attain 100 members.

Rather than having an officers' head table as we have had in the past, the officers are sitting with the membership to facilitate getting better acquainted. Besides the speaker sitting at the head table we have endeavored to seat some guests and new members.

The roster of our current membership has been completed, and we have received cell phone numbers for many of our members. Those who have not provided that to our secretary, Beth Daly, please do so.

50/50 Raffle

Please buy raffle tickets for the 50/50 raffle in order to support the projects of our club at the table just inside the Rappahannock Grand Ballroom.

Bulletins

The entrance table also contains brochures and printouts for other history related events, and is available for such bulletins as members may wish to place. Books donated to the club may also be placed there by members.
