The meeting came to order
at 7 PM at the Louisa County Public Library, by our coordinator, Jack
Bertron. After the prayer, said by Tom Silling and the pledge, the first

Finally, Jack Bertron
introduced our guest speaker of the evening, which was the state
director for the NRA in Virginia, Mr. Patrick DeStefano. Patrick spoke

As of now the VCDL is endorsing the NRA so that they can
work together to make this all a conglomerate of groups to accomplish a

these teaching methods and concurrently have him get all the groups
together at one location.
After Patrick DeStefano's presentation our meeting came to a close.
