IWLL initiates Memorial Fund Honoring Jimmy Lacy

The Izaak WaIton League of Lynchburg recently established a memorial fund honoring the legacy of James A “Jimmy” Lacy Jr, a chapter member for over 60 years and ardent supporter of the league, the outdoors, and natural resource conservation. The fund will provide an ongoing means of furthering the ideals Jimmy embraced during his lifetime by granting each year a single annual chapter membership to a worthy individual or family exhibiting a passion for the outdoors and the overall resource conservation goals of the Izaak Walton League of America. Chapter members and others wishing to contribute to this new fund are invited to send a check designating the fund to: Izaak Walton League of Lynchburg, PO Box 4002, Lynchburg, VA, 24502.

We are part of the Izaak Walton League of America, a non-profit national conservation organization with a mission, "To conserve, maintain, protect and restore the soil, forest, water, and other national resources of the United States and other lands, to promote means and opportunities for the education of the public with respect to such resources and their enjoyment and wholesome utilization."

Established in January 1941, one of the ways the Lynchburg, Virginia Chapter has striven to fulfill the IWLA mission is through the development and maintenance of our Walton Park recreational facility. Located in Amherst County just north of Madison Heights, Walton Park covers 325 acres and includes a campground, swimming and fishing lakes, picnic areas, playgrounds, and shotgun, rifle, pistol, and archery ranges.
