Family Foundation Lobby Day in Richmond, Mon Jan. 19

Just a calendar note and heads up...the annual Family Foundation lobby day is Monday, Jan 19 in Richmond. We can carpool from Roanoke.

The event usually starts about 10 am with a meeting and then we lobby our Virginia delegates and Senators in Richmond, returning in the late afternoon. Our issues are typically prolife, lower taxes and smaller government, depending on what bills are being offered at the time.

Please make plans to join us. Tell me if you are interested in going.
