2016 Christmas Social held 12/13 at the Virginia War Memorial

The Virginia Pond’s annual Christmas Social was held on Tuesday, December 13, at the Virginia War Memorial in Richmond.   Through the generosity of our sponsors and guests, we were able to raise funds and other donations for the USO while enjoying a great evening of fellowship!  See photos..

Many thanks to the sponsors who supported the event:  RAM Construction; USF&G; Jenkins Restorations; HFBulifant & Sons; Midkiff, Muncie & Ross, P.C.; and Forcon, Int’l.

2017 Christmas Social on 12/20 at the Virginia War Memorial

By popular request, the Virginia Pond will be returning to the Virginia War Memorial for this year’s annual Christmas Social on Wednesday, December 20.  Family and guests are welcome!

As last year, the venue will be closed to the public during the event.  For those who have not visited the memorial before, it is a wonderful monument to the men and women who have defended our country from World War II to the present.  Its location offers a beautiful view of the James River and Richmond City skyline, which will be decorated for the holiday season.

The event cost is $40/pp when paid by the RSVP deadline and $45 thereafter, and includes food, beverages (wine, beer and soft drinks), access to all exhibits, plus great fellowship!  RSVP’s are needed by 12/15 in order to make sure we have enough food and beverages!

As is our tradition, the feature charity at this event is the USO of Central Virginia.  The USO center at the Richmond Int’l Airport provides hospitality to thousands of troops and their families who are traveling during the holiday season.  Guests are invited to bring to this event donations of needed items, such as individual size snacks and beverages, travel size toiletries, and cash/gift cards.  We will also be selling tickets for raffle prizes with all proceeds going to the USO.  Raffle prize donations are welcome!

A Shuckin’ Good Time Was Had by All

The Virginia Pond’s 7th annual Shuckin’ & Jivin’ event on Wednesday, October 18 was another great success!  The weather was perfect.  The music provided by Susan Greenbaum was awesome! The oysters and other items were plentiful and tasty.  And we had wonderful attendance, including some future goslings which made it a true family affair.  View photos here.
