November 2018 Program

Our November program was presented by Dr. Richard Lewis on “Confederate Generals’ Uniforms”. We appreciate his insight, knowledge and passion regarding the individual uniform used by many Confederate Generals and Colonels for pictures after the war and the history involved.

Policy for Members Concerning Non-Attendance after Making a Reservation

Over the years, we have a small number of people make reservations for our dinner meetings, but fail to appear. The club bears the meal and club overhead cost of $32.00 on each occurrence. This issue was addressed at the March 25, 2016 meeting of the Executive Committee and the following Resolution was passed:

"In the future, short of an emergency (classified as a personal unforeseen emergency event, which is reported by the member to the treasurer within five (5) business days’ post meeting), the treasurer shall be authorized to invoice the non-appearing member for the meeting/dinner costs incurred when such member(s) fails to honor his or her reservation(s) for the scheduled CWRTF meeting/dinner event."

If you have a personal unforeseen emergency and inform the Secretary in a timely fashion as denoted above, you will not be invoiced for the missed meeting. No shows are obviously of greater concern when we consistently have 4 or 5 members make reservations and then fail to appear for the event.

If you have made a reservation and realize you will not be able to attend, prior to the dinner, please contact Beth Daly immediately either by email ( or telephone (540-729-0260).

Speakers for the 2018 - 2019 Program Years

The Program Committee consists of Pat Quinn, Scott Boyd, John Pavlansky and Paul Scott. I wish to personally thank them for their knowledge, input and the contacts made to the prospective speakers and for arranging such unique and interesting programs for this calendar year. (See Program Year 2018-2019 )

Brochures and Community Contacts

Brochures have been printed and distributed throughout the city retail establishments, libraries and local museums. Professional cards for our officers and general membership have been printed and are available. See Beth Daly, Secretary, if you would like some cards.

Notices of our meetings are printed in Alan Zirkle's 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.

Membership and Roster

With this program year’s renewed and new memberships, we are closing in on last year’s growth. Your continued emphasis will help us surpass that number by January. So, invite a friend to the next meeting. As always, make are guests feel welcome. Membership is an investment into the Civil War Round Table of Fredericksburg. I hope you will agree that the learning and social experiences of our monthly meetings, as well as our Heritage Awards and Albert Z. Conner Internship with the National Park Service make for an excellent return on investment.

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, we have also endeavored to seat some guests and new members at the head table. So take the opportunity to ask your fellow members about themselves, their backgrounds, their history, whether it be professional or military or whatever, and you'd be surprised at the "history" of each person.

Updating our membership roster is an ongoing process. Members can update their contact information by signing into our website or by giving it to our secretary, Beth Daly.

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.

I look forward to seeing you at the January 23rd meeting.
