Good morning, Everyone!
This email announces the 5th Community-Wide Meeting of our citizen movement to stop construction of a Counter-terrorism Combat Training Range in New Kent.
We’ll gather at Gauthier Vineyard Winery on Wednesday, 27 June, at 6:30 pm. Address is 5000 Farmers Drive – map). Just look for the large orange sign that says “NO COMBAT RANGE IN NEW KENT” at the winery entrance!
We have many updates to share. And this is a wonderful opportunity to meet more concerned citizens and neighbors.
Please bring your petitions with you – we’ve started counting and collating them! And we’ll have more blank petitions so you can continue to gather signatures.
If you think about it, our first real inkling something awful was being plotted for Barhamsville and New Kent County was on 6 June, when Curtis met a few folks from the community at Holly Fork Farm. After the Curtis briefing, it was clear we would have to do something to stop the destruction of our homes, farms, families – of our very way of life. Since 6 June, we have mobilized – Curtis awoke the sleeping giant that is us! We are so proud to be a part of this magnificent community-wide movement. We welcome our James City County neighbors in this fight. We are all, truly, in this together.
Looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday …. and wear those orange shirts. (It makes for awesome optics!)
