Members and Friends of the Montross Tea Party,


Our Board of Directors have been concerned for sometime on the drop of attendance at our Regular Tuesday night meetings. Our last meeting the attendance was 6.  We understand that we have members that are out of town and others that do not drive after dark especially in the winter and others that are working hard and just can’t make the meetings. 


It is getting hard to get speakers and not fair to get speakers for only 6-10 members.  We have asked for input from our members.  The only input we have received is from our lively open discussions at meetings.


We are not going to roll over and let the Montross Tea Party die!  But we need to do something.  After two Board Meetings and a long agonizing debate this is our solution for now.  We are going to suspend our Tuesday night meetings for the time being.  This is effective the 8th of February.  The Board can call regular meetings as necessary.


Our Plan is this:

  1. Continue with Monthly Board Meetings.  We will announce them so members that have an interest can attend the Board Meetings. We can also call special Board Meetings as necessary.
  1. Continue with our Standing Committees.
    • Event Committee – Board (we would like a Chairperson)
    • Highway Clean Up Committee – Vic Snell
    • Letter Writing Committee – Doc Dugan
    • Membership Contact Committee – Bill Horn
  2. We will have a meeting on April 7th as this is our Election of Officers as called for by our By-Laws.  We will appoint a Nominating Committee and will take nominations from the floor.
  3. We will continue with our Long Range Events.

·        Spring Gun Show Booth (If there is one)

·        Memorial Day Observance

·        Richmond County Fair

·        Constitution Day Observance

·        Montross Fall Festival and Parade

·        Lively/Montross 99th District Joint Christmas Party

We will also keep our email list and sending out Information as needed.  As the local elections heat up we may call meetings to meet the candidates.

The Montross Tea Party has made a favorable impact in the Northern Neck and enjoys a good reputation.  With your cooperation we can continue to do so.  Please be willing to volunteer when you receive an email for a call to action.

The Board encourages any input on our plan and suggestions.  We hope that we can get back to Regular Meetings with all your support.


Best regards,

Kathy Craig,
