The Va Flaggers had over 20 Flaggers out this past Saturday, wrapping the Boulevard with flags and Flaggers, including Flaggers who traveled from Luray, Kenbridge, and Urbanna! With a gorgeous day in Richmond, and many St. Patrick's Day events being held near the Boulevard, traffic was brisk and our Flaggers kept busy with conversations and many educational opportunities.
Photographer Judy Smith caught this shot from inside the VMFA, giving us a glimpse of what museum officials see from the building...
This week, professionally bound packets of information and a copy of a letter to Alex Nyerges, director of the Museum, restating our request and re-affirming our commitment to continue our efforts, were mailed to museum officials, members of the board of Directors, and local and State officials.
TOMORROW, Thursday, March 20th, the Board of Directors meets at the museum at 12:30. We are planning to have a presence on the grounds for the meeting, and are asking all who are able to join us to do so, and help us show museum Leadership that there are still MANY folks who care enough about the honor and valor of our Confederate Ancestors to stand in their defense.
We would also like to FLOOD THE PHONE LINES during the meeting, so we are asking you to PLEASE take a moment to support the troops on the ground and help with this offensive. CALL VMFA Administration anytime from NOON UNTIL 5:00 P.M. at (804) 340-1506 and tell them to do the right and honorable thing and return the Confederate Battle Flags to the Confederate Memorial Chapel on the grounds of Confederate Memorial Park. Even if you have called before, please take the time to make another call today. Call early...and often! Be polite, but firm in your request.
PLEASE pass this request on to any and all Confederates and friends who may be willing to join us in this most important endeavor!
RETURN the flags!
RESTORE the honor!
