Founded in 1957, our Round Table is one of the oldest in the nation. We couldn't ask for a better location: four major battles of the Civil War were fought within 20 miles of Fredericksburg. Our group of about 100 members meets once each month for a catered dinner followed by the presentation of a Civil War topic by a guest speaker - frequently a nationally-known author.
We meet the fourth Wednesday of every month (except December, July and August) at the Washington Jepson Alumni Executive Center at 1119 Hanover Street in Fredericksburg, Virginia.
The bar opens at 5:45pm. Social begins at 6pm. Dinner is at 6:45pm. The program starts around 7:30pm. usually conclude by 9pm.
Reservations are required. Please call (540) 361-2105 or emailing FredCWRT@yahoo.com with a message regarding how many seats you require. Place your reservation request NLT Noon, Friday, September 23. 2016. If later you find you cannot attend, please call in your cancellation.
Coat and tie are not required; this has merely been a tradition. The dinner cost is $32.00 by cash or check at the door
The August newsletter set forth the several categories of membership in an effort to increase interest and our membership roll. In order to attract younger members, we have established a free student membership with the meal cost at $10.00. Please consider adding an additional sum to your membership check or meals payment in order for us to establish a fund to defer the additional expense of the meals for the students. The membership committee will be preparing a circular with the idea to attract students from the University of Mary Washington. New members are essential to the health of the club so please make a renewed effort to bring guests to our meetings with an eye to them becoming part of our membership. As guests arrive, please greet them, get to know them, and make them feel welcome at our meetings. Besides the other officers, Fred Sisk and John Harris as vice-president will make a special effort to greet any guests and new members. I ask that a member sitting at each table take it upon themselves to especially greet and converse with guests and new members.
Paul Scott, President
