Presidential Pondering

by William A Sutton, Jr.

As I reflect on all of the awesome things VRA accomplished last year, I’m reminded that it would not have been possible without the continued support from each of you. Each member, community partner and supporter has played a critical role in the overall success of our organization. As we look forward to the 2019-2020 year, I would just like to bring your attention to a few things that will hopefully help us attract some new members and excite existing members this year.

• Inaugural VRA 3K Family Fun/Walk which will be held on Saturday, May 11, 2019 at 9:30a.m. St. Joseph’s Villa, 8000 Brook Road, Richmond VA 23227 Register now at:

• VRA will host a series of workshops at zero cost to members (CRC Credit will be available for some).

• Update our non profit status in an effort to allow donors to receive a tax write off by supporting VRA.

• Enhance our impact in the local communities we serve throughout Virginia that align with goals and objectives of VRA.

I’m looking forward to an amazing year! Please let me know if you have any suggestions or recommendations that might enhance your VRA experience. If you’d like to join a committee (Communications, Education. Legislative, Ways and Means, VRA Gives Back-Special Projects) we would love to have you. Thanks again for all your hard work!

Be Great.
