Questions to the ORC

The following is a copy of  what was voted on by the Camp and presented to the
Virginia Convention, DEC and a few members of the Oakwood Restoration
Committee. Compatriot Steve Bridgers made the presentation on April 18th.

Tracy Clary said it would be taken in advisement by the Oakwood Restoration Committee.

Barry Isenhour informed Mike Pullen that providing these documents would help improve relations between all parties. This is a matter of holding the ORC accountable. This goes to transparency, if there is nothing to hide release the proof.

Eagle Scout Project

Sam ParsonsHelp to support our fellow Compatriot, Sam Parsons, complete his Eagle Scout project by donating to his project by clicking here.

He is a Life Scout working to attain the rank of Eagle. One of the requirements for Eagle is that a Life Scout must, plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project benefiting the community.  My project is the construction of fish attractors for the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (VDGIF). These attractors will be used to create an artificial structure where fish of all sizes will congregate.  Smaller fish will use this for protection, while larger fish will use this as a hunting ground.  This will help to improve fish populations while providing anglers with a better opportunity to harvest fish. This will also provide recreational fishing opportunities for the people of Virginia
