Our guest speaker last week was Brian Canon, Executive Director of OneVirginia2021. The organization's mission is "to advocate for the adoption of an amendment to the Virginia constitution that will establish an independent, impartial commission to apply a fair and transparent process in drawing political districts after the 2020 census."
Thanks to those who joined us for an engaging discussion of redistricting that will impact education, transportation and, indeed, the political process within the Commonwealth.
The meeting was scheduled for September 24, 2015 at 12:00 Noon at 1757 Golf Club.

Fun Facts About Labor Day:
- Labor Day was declared a National Holiday in 1894.
- "Don't wear white after Labor Day" probably began with upper-class citizens. It was fashionable to wear white on summer holiday, and upon returning to the city for fall, people wore darker, heavier clothing.
- Who founded Labor Day? No one is really sure. Some sources indicate it was Peter J. McGuire, who was the co-founder of the American Federation of Labor. Recently, Matthew Maguire, a machinist and secretary of a local International Association of Machinists in New Jersey has been credited with creating the holiday
There will be no regular meeting on September 3, 2015. The BOD will meet at the regular time of noon to 1:15 or so at 1757 Golf Club. The BOD meeting will be followed by the Golf Charity Event. Everyone is encouraged to join the tournament.....duffers included.
September is a busy Event month for our Club and we will exchange the meeting on the 3rd for one or more events during the month. There are many opportunities to participate and many different types of events. Should be something for everyone.
Please check the Events Calendar for a complete list of opportunities to serve your club and your community this month!
Chairman Scott K. York
Thanks to Chairman York for joining us. We appreciate that he is a very busy man and appreciate that he took the time to speak with us about transportation in Loudoun County. As he said, the good news is that there is lots of building of roads and infrastructure going on. The bad news is that there is lots of building of roads and infrastructure going on and getting around will continue to be frustrating through this year and next.
Kudos to Talmar for a rousing presentation.
Clarify your purpose and make sure your activities support that purpose.
