THANK YOU to Ann, Debby, and Megan who helped with the Ut Prosim clean-up at RAAI's MAYFEST event on Saturday, May 4, 2013.
We have a new feature available through our web site - an online Hokie Business Directory for the Fredericksburg area. We don't have many businesses listed yet, but we hope the directory will grow as more people find out that it is available. If you're a Hokie (or related to a Hokie) and want to get your business listed, the "how to" information is on the directory web page. We are planning for this to be free during a trial period, and then possbily cost $25 a year. This would support our scholarship fund and other chapter activities.
We now have a group page on Facebook. You can visit our page and join us by clicking on the Facebook logo.
Please help us keep you informed about Virginia Tech and the Fredericksburg Area Chapter of the VTAA by letting us know your email address. Click here to get on our email list. This is a confidential list, and your e-mail address will not be shared. Only Hokie related mail will be sent.
