The Va Flaggers received word early this morning that our deposit sent in April for vendor registration was going to be returned and our request for a table denied, so we regret that we will not have a presence at the 2015 SCV National Reunion in Richmond.
Many of you have been asking about how to reach us and have requested information about when and how you can join us while in town. We have several opportunities for you to stand with us, as your schedule allows…
On Thursday, July 16th and Friday, July 17th, we will be flagging the VMFA (Virginia Museum of Fine Arts) from 4:00 p.m. – Dusk. We welcome all who would join us as we continue our vigil there, forwarding the colors and protesting the forced removal of Confederate Battle Flags from the portico of the Confederate Memorial Chapel. The address for the museum is 200 N. Boulevard, Richmond VA 23220. The museum is about a 15 minute drive from the host hotel. Come for an hour or two, stay for the entire flagging, or just stop by to say hello!
BREAKING NEWS! We are thrilled to announce that just a few hours ago, we received word that we had been approved for a permit to hold a rally on the grounds of the State Capitol on SATURDAY, JULY 18TH, 3:00 p.m. We hope that as many of you as possible will join us as we gather to send a strong message to the Governor, the Legislature, and the citizens of the Commonwealth that there are still those of us who refuse to sit idly by while our heritage and history is destroyed. We are pleased to join with our brothers in the Army of Northern Virginia Mechanized Cavalry, who are co-sponsoring the event!
The State Capitol is approx. 20 minutes from the host hotel. The rally will end at 4:00 p.m.
Uniform/period dress and/or street clothes both welcome. Special permission for flags with poles has been provided, BUT if you want to bring a flag and pole onto the grounds, you must place it on the ground beside you once you arrive, and it (and therefore the person holding it) cannot move from that spot until they are ready to leave. Flag stands are permissible, so feel free to bring your flags from the Reunion hall. Stick flags must be shorter than 12″ and knives are not allowed.
We apologize for the short notice, but the permit was JUST issued today. We will have more details available in the next few days.
Thursday, July 16th: Flagging the VMFA 4:00 p.m. – DUSK, 200 N. Boulevard, Richmond. This will be a special flagging to allow SCV members who are attending the National Reunion to join us on the Boulevard.
Friday, July 17th: Flagging the VMFA 4:00 p.m. – DUSK, 200 N. Bouleaverd, Richmond. This will be a special flagging to allow SCV members who are attending the National Reunion to join us on the Boulevard.
