Other notable decisions by the board include:
* We will award Public Safety and Teacher Awards in each of our five counties, but still only forward one to VASSAR.
* We established a committee to plan a suitable marker to inform visitors and to celebrate Cap Gabriel Long who was a Minuteman and also commanded a rifle company in the 11th Virginia during the Revolution. Lon Lacey will chair the committee and so far Bill Schwetke is a member - looking for more.
* We approved the purchase of a Culpeper Minutemen Battle Flag to be presented to the Culpeper Minutemen Chapter of the DAR.
* We approved Lon Lacey's proposal to plan for an enhanced program for next Independence Day in Culpeper to include a banquet on the evening of the 3rd featuring a George Washington reenactor. When Lon presents his plan we will vote on moving forward with it. Jim Bayne and Bill Schwetke will be assisting Lon - more participants in the planning are welcome.
It was very encouraging to have prospective member Price Martin attend the BOM meeting. Price's application should be ready for submission in a couple weeks or less.
