Historically, the Virginia Society has met twice a year, on the last Saturday in
March and the last Saturday in October. Initially, the Spring Meeting
was the Annual Meeting and was held in conjunction with a luncheon. The
Fall Meeting began with a Council Meeting for officers and Council members,
followed by a banquet on Saturday evening shared by all the members and guests.
Traditionally on Sunday morning all the members attended church together.
The first anniversary was celebrated by a "Day of Remembrance" service at
Manakin Episcopal Church in King William Parish, Powhatan County, on October 27,
1963, with the pastor Rev. W. C. Christian as host. Huguenots originally
founded the church in 1700 when several shiploads of the refugees arrived at
Hampton. Through the years the Virginia society has enjoyed a large number
of talented members serving as leaders of the society.
The October Day of Remembrance has changed to a Council Meeting followed by a
Fellowship Hour, luncheon and a program, the same schedule as followed by the March Annual
In recent years, our meetings have been held in various areas of Virginia such as:
Richmond, Williamsburg, Charlottesville and Culpeper
