We are very fortunate that the award-winning Civil War historian and
author W. C. Davis will be speaking to us about "The Monstrous
Regiment of Women." These were the women who posed as men to serve in
the Civil War. This promises to be an outstanding presentation.
The evening will begin with a reception at 6:00 PM. The excellent
Buffet Dinner begins at 7:00 PM, with our speaker to follow. Thanks to
the efforts of several Round Table members, the cost for this year's
dinner has been reduced for the second year in a row. The ticket price
this year will be $32 for members and their spouses or dates. (The cost
for your guests who would like to attend, but are not members of the
Round Table will be $35 per person.)
Beer, wine, cocktails, and soft drinks will be available at the
reception. There is no charge for soft drinks. Tickets for alcoholic
beverages may be purchased for $4.
We expect to have an enthusiastic response to this annual event and we
have to confirm our count early. You are therefore encouraged to make
your reservations now.
Meeting Attendance for: October 2012 = 68 with members present from as
far away as Australia!
I look forward to seeing you at our reception and November dinner
meeting at Willow Oaks Country Club! Those of you who attended last
year's dinner know what a fine job the Willow Oaks staff did to ensure
that we had a pleasant evening and a delicious meal. We will all enjoy
the evening with our great speaker, the always interesting and
entertaining Professor William C. (Jack) Davis from Virginia Tech.
