Va Flaggers 5th Anniversary Picnic/Auction - Celebrating and Giving Thanks!

Thanks to our wonderful supporters, guests, and Flagger family, our 5th Anniversary picnic and auction was our best ever!
We had the Mobile Flagger Response Unit set up for display and tours and it was a HUGE hit. She has been outfitted with a 55" screen TV and sound system. We debuted this Sunday at the picnic and the response was overwhelmingly positive. This is going to be a great tool for reaching folks with videos and other media that teach and recruit!

There was something for everyone, but the the theme of the day was FAMILY and our first ever "Little Rebels Boot Camp" was a GREAT success!  Many thanks to the men of the Capt. William Latane Camp 1690 SCV for all of your hard work in making this happen.  The kids loved it and I've had parents already asking if we are going to do it again next year. 


Everyone enjoyed the excellent music by Virginia Dare, and our friends from the Virginia Scots Guard Pipes and Drums.

Thanks to a large, generous crowd, and the wonderful donations received from across the country, we surpassed our fund raising goal for the third straight year!  

 We were honored to meet many folks for the first time, have the chance to visit with old friends and family, and get the opportunity to share some of our history as well as our plans for the future.

Message received Monday:
I would like to sincerely thank the The Virginia Flaggers organization for such a great anniversary event. This is the first time attending one of your events, and my family and I felt very welcome, there was such a family atmosphere that we felt right at home even though we were meeting people for the first time. Clearly this is a group of individuals with class and honor, and I look forward to supporting your group and attending events in the future.

Thank you again. -DC Ward

The Virginia Flaggers with to thank everyone who contributed in ANY way to make this day possible. We could never have made the event come together so well, with so much success, without the generous support and hard work of so many dedicated people.
We are already looking forward to next year!

With a grateful heart,
Susan Hathaway
