RFC Purpose
RTD - Celebrate 100 Years




Greetings,

Given Governor Northam's advisory to isolate through June 10, we will need to cancel Richmond First Club programs for April, May, and June. Our annual spring social will be postponed to a more propitious time.

As we usually take a summer break, we look forward very much to seeing everyone for our September 9 meeting. Sam Seeley, Vice President for Programs, is lining up an exciting group of speakers for our 2020-2021 meetings. Please forward any suggestions that you may have for program topics and speakers to Sam (sseeley@comcast.net).

We should all be proud of the vote in the Virginia legislature to send an amendment for a new redistricting plan to voters in November, in a noble effort to end partisan gerrymandering. Redistricting reform has been at the top of the Richmond First Club agenda, championed by our members in newspaper articles, messages to legislators, and frontline lobbying. Praise for Virginia is noted in a New York Times article, linked here:

We are also proud of our very own Nan Riggs, whose letter in the April 1 Richmond Times-Dispatch earned "Correspondent of the Day." Excellent advice for the current time, Nan.

COD, April 1, 2020: Model best behavior, especially during crisis

As the mission of the Richmond First Club is to support good government, perhaps in the quiet time ahead at home, we can catch up on our reading and viewing of related subjects. Please share your favorite reads and videos with the membership-Founding Father biographies, essays on government, current events, History Channel Vault programs, etc. Send your notes to me at suzmunson01@gmail.com.

All the best,
Suzanne Munson
President
Richmond First Club
