NAPS 15th Annual Fall Social (2004)
The Northumberland Association for Progressive Stewardship (NAPS) invites the public to the fifteenth annual NAPS fall social Saturday, Sept. 25th, from 4 to 6 p.m.
Longtime Northumberland residents may remember with great fondness gatherings at other groves in the county, notably Marvin Grove and Kirkland Grove. This year NAPS wants to introduce you to a new one, the lovely and peaceful grove at Bay Quarter Shores.
Just like other grove meetings there will be delicious food, provided by the Northumberland Woman’s Club and beautiful decorations thanks to the expertise of the Northumberland Garden Club. Food, fun and friends: what a combination! A highlight of the Social will be the presentation of the NAPS Distinguished Citizen Award for 2004. The Distinguished Citizen award will be given to Audrey Brainard. Henry Bashore will receive a new award called the "Ambassador Award" which has the same criteria as the Distinguished Citizen award but is intended for people who do not actually live in Northumberland County.
NAPS dedicates itself to representing residents of the county on environmental issues from urban planning, sludge, planting shore grasses and sponsoring clean-up programs to eradicating non-native invasive shore weeds like Phragmites. NAPS also presents conservation and environmental education programs in the elementary school.
Proceeds from this annual social and membership dues are the only funds collected from Northumberland citizens for all NAPS projects. If Sept. 25th doesn’t work for you, we hope you will consider being with us in spirit by contributing the cost of one or two tickets (or more, if you wish) to our Angel Fund. Tickets are $15 per person and may be purchased by sending a check made out to NAPS, c/o Judy Burgess, P.O. Box 196, Reedville, VA.22539. Questions may be addressed to her at email@example.com or 453-3933.
