A message from Governor Scarlett Stahl:

“As your new Governor, I hope I can welcome you personally at our 2016 Fall Meeting on Saturday, November 12. Our speaker, Professor Stewart Davenport of Pepperdine University, will discuss Tobacco in Colonial Virginia: From Boom to Bacon’s Rebellion. Having heard Professor Davenport three times, I am sure you will find him both knowledgeable and entertaining. I look forward to seeing all of you there.

“I have been working closely with our Lt. Governor, Julie Plemmons, in planning for our proposed venues and speakers. We expect to have three meetings during this, our 17th, year …one in the San Diego area, one in the Los Angeles area and one in between. We hope to see more members become active in our Company and encourage prospective members to get acquainted.”
