Robert E. Halpern, 3rd Vice President, Richmond Chapter
25 Jul 2015 Henricus Historical Park
At 11 AM on Saturday July 25th the Richmond Chapter reinstated its Annual Picnic, (formally called the Richmond Chapters Garden Party), at Henricus Historical Park. On a beautiful sunny day the Richmond Chapter Member's and their families toured the parks buildings and enjoyed the Parks Interpreters before having their catered picnic. A meal that consisted of BBQ sandwiches, hot dogs, coleslaw, potato salad, potato chips, and drinks of tea, lemonade, wine, and beer were also served. Two brief historical presentations were made by both Charles Grant, Executive Director of Henricus Historic Park and by Richmond Chapter Compatriot Richard Jarvis. At a brief Richmond Chapter meeting two new members, Stephen Mick and Travis Toombs, were inducted into the Chapter. They then received their rosettes pinned on by their loved ones. It was an enjoyable afternoon by all who attended.
