VASSAR Chancellor Monday Appointed to VA General Assembly to the Commission for the 250th Anniversary of the American Revolution
VASSAR Chancellor and Colonel George Waller Chapter compatriot Eric Monday has been appointed by the Virginia General Assembly to the Commission for the 250th anniversary of the American Revolution. The purpose of the Commission is to plan, develop, and perform programs and activities to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the American Revolution, the Revolutionary War, and the independence of the United States. Compatriot Monday is one of 24 members, including legislators and representatives of several key historical organizations, and his term on this commission is set to expire along with the life of the Commission itself. His seat on the commission represents the Virginia Bar Association.
Compatriot Monday provided the following quotes in speaking about this at last evening's Martinsville City Council Meeting. "It’s a pretty big deal for Virginia," he said. "This will literally mean hundreds of millions of dollars to the Commonwealth of Virginia". Virginia's efforts in this area will compliment a larger effort at the federal level to commemorate the 250th anniversary.
Mr. Monday is the Martinsville City Attorney, Assistant City Manager, and is the Virginia Society Sons of the American Revolution State Chancellor. It is of obvious significance to the Virginia Society and to the CGW Chapter for him to be serving on this commission.
