Virginia SAR President R. Bruce Meyer and the Williamsburg & Thomas Nelson, Jr. Chapters invite members of the Sons of the American Revolution and their guests to attend the 2022 Semi-Annual Meeting at The Woodlands Resort & Conference Center in Williamsburg, Virginia this September 16th-17th. Federal, state and/or local Covid guidelines or mandates which are in effect at the time of our meeting will be adhered to.
We are executing this meeting with a different approach than in years past by spending two evenings (Friday and Saturday) to accommodate our partnership with the Virginia C.A.R. with events in Yorktown, Virginia followed by exciting activities and entertainment back at The Woodlands on Saturday evening with our very own Nansemond Indian Patriots Chapter Ceremonial Dance Team and 18th Century dancing during our dinner. We are asking all to arrive at The Woodlands on Friday afternoon to register and, while the men take part in early workshops, our ladies and guests may visit the surrounding area such as Colonial Williamsburg/Merchant Square with free, full Visitor’s Passes and shuttle service as part of our hotel accommodations. We will enjoy a dinner buffet with a cash bar and national recognition for our state and chapters from the Congress held last month followed by President Meyer’s reception before we settle in for a good night’s rest for Saturday’s big day.
Early Saturday morning we will celebrate Constitution Day with a charter bus (or POV) trip to the Yorktown Battlefield Visitor Center where we will co-dedicate a plaque with the Virginia C.A.R. for the Center’s new A/V tower and orientation film for their theater we have funded. We will plan to watch a short demonstration of the Fifes and Drums at the Yorktown Victory Monument adjacent to the Center and take a picture of all of our Semi-Annual participants. We will then take our charter bus to the American Revolution Museum where we will enjoy our box lunches and enjoy a short presentation by our guest speaker on the Constitution.
Shuttle service for our ladies and guests to the surrounding area will be available again while the men conduct their business meeting. A social gathering with cash bar is followed by a plated dinner culminating in the much-anticipated dance entertainment. We will also have special recognition and individual awards to present as we end our Semi-Annual Meeting with goodbyes that evening to head home Sunday morning.
