Arnold Marker

Bert Dunkerly reports that the City of Richmond has approved acceptance of the Arnold's Raid on Richmond historical marker.  Bert and city officials are now in the design development and approval phase.  Bert is also progressing with the needed fund raising from other groups to join our $300 donation.  He's optimistic!

Next Meeting: May 20, 2020... via ZOOM!

We hope that all are safe and well.  Obviously, the current times have required many cancellations and changes to group meetings such as ours.  First, our thanks to both Jim Christ and Ryan Cole, our March and May speakers, for their understanding of this situation.  Bruce is working to reschedule both of these gentlemen for either later this year or for 2021.

Our May meeting will take a different format utilizing Zoom, rather than an in-person gathering.  Thanks to Peggy Watson, we will be utilizing the Osher network to present our own Mark Lender speaking about the Conway Cabal.  This is the subject of Mark's newest book Cabal! The Plot Against General Washington
I highly recommend Cabal to you.  Thanks very much to Mark for filling the breech.

We will provide sign-in details in next month's newsletter, prior to the meeting.

We do realize that all members might not be able to view the program, but also feel that this approach is better than entirely missing another meeting.

Mark's lecture will be Zoomed on WEDNESDAY, MAY 20 BEGINNING AT 6:30.  We won't worry about the other parts of the meeting.  Hopefully, by July 15, things will be back to normal.

(Thanks to Bill Welsch for the above.)
