    For all those interested in heading out to Kentucky for North America's largest Jane Austen Festival, July 14-16, please e-mail us at info@varegency.org or reply to the Jane Austen Festival post in the Member Chatter forum in the Members Only section of the website (login to access it).

    If you would like to be included in the RSV contingent (and take advantage of carpools, division of lodging costs, group registration for the festival), be sure to let us know as soon as possible via e-mail or the forum.  We'd love to see a huge group of RSVers out there!

    In honor of the bicentennial of James Monroe's first inauguration as President, the James Monroe Museum is hosting a reenactment of that event on March 4 on the campus of the University of Mary Washington.  Any RSV member who would like to participate is encouraged to register by February 28 in order to ensure that we get the relevant information to those who are planning to attend.  The event is free and those who attend in period attire will be welcome to stand behind the Presidential party at the podium during the ceremonies.  A reception will follow.  Click here to get more information and to register!

    That same weekend, on Sunday, March 5, the Moses Myers House in Norfolk is hosting their monthly "History Speaks" talk.  This month's subject will be what life was like for a young lady growing up in the early Republic.  You are welcome to attend in period attire. Click here for more information.

    One of the exciting things that we discussed at our annual meeting was the possibility of taking a group trip to England in 2019.  We're still in the exploratory stages of this trip but likely destinations will be London, Bath, Lyme Regis, and Portsmouth.  Interested in getting the latest news on the trip?  Be sure to register on the events page!  Registration does not oblige you to go, it simply lets us know who's interested and gets you on a mailing list to receive updates on the trip as we get them.

    We've got the bulk of our 2017 calendar up on the Events page!  In addition to multiple volunteer opportunities, old favorites like the Ladies' Retreat and the Victory Ball are back.  We're also exploring taking a group trip to the UK in 2019, so if you're interested in possibly going, be sure to register so that you can get updates via e-mail.  There will be more events going up and several events whose registrations are not currently open will be soon.

    We hope to see you often in 2017!

    Join us on February 4 as we learn about the life experienced by the enslaved population at James and Dolley Madison's Montpelier.  The RSV will be meeting at the Ettrick-Matoaca Library for a presentation hosted by the Chesterfield County Public Library System.  Ms. Charmain Crowell-White will discuss life on the plantation from the perspective of Sukey, a slave woman owned by the Madisons.  Registration is required to see what promises to be a fascinating one-woman show.  If you would like to register with the RSV, please do so by January 22.  (Miss the deadline?  No worries!  You can still attend by registering as an individual through February 3 through the Chesterfield County Public Library website.)

    Since much of Virginia is going to be dealing with snowfall this weekend, we have determined that it would be in the best interest of our members to reschedule our Twelfth Night Dinner.  Therefore, we will be celebrating Twelfth Night a week later, on January 14, at the Hanover Tavern.

    If you registered for the original date and will be unable to make it, please contact us at info@varegency.org by January 8 to let us know how you wish your refund to be handled. 

    We have also reopened registration until January 8 so that anyone who may be able to join us now may do so!  Visit the event listing to register!

    When are membership fees and application due for 2017?

    We are keeping an eye on the weather and trying to develop contingencies for our Twelfth Night gathering should snow and ice interfere.  If you have already registered for Twelfth Night, you should have received an email with a link to a brief questionnaire regarding cancellation or rescheduling.  Please be certain to respond as soon as possible! 

    Once we have received responses and discussed possible arrangements with Hanover Tavern, we will get back in touch with those of you who have registered for the original event.
