We know that people are understandably excited about Christmas — family reunions, decorations, brisk weather that brings you alive, great food and get-togethers, music, gifts and the most important gift of all, the celebration of our Lord's birth, and the grounding  that the humility of the Word made flesh provides us. Still, this time of year has a professional meaning for us. It means we start to deck the halls — the halls of the General Assembly. But we need to plan now to deck the halls of the capitol with people who will stand up for traditional values and promote principle over politics with their delegates and senators. This is why we are planning the:

2009 Family Foundation Day At The Capitol

Monday, January 19

9:00 a.m. through the afternoon

This is a day where you will meet other Virginians who share your principles, hear from legislators who champion these principles, listen to experts who support these principles, and meet with your delegate and senator to encourage them to vote for legislation that refelcts these principles. 

Family Foundation Day at the Capitol will be held at the Richmond Marriott, 500 East Broad Street, as well as visits to the General Assembly Building and the capitol. It costs nothing except lunch and your own and transportation. If you would like to attend, reserve your place now by contacting:

Register no later than January 13, 2009 to ensure scheduled meetings with your legislators! Now, more than ever, it is important for your voice to be heard. Let your representatives know that it is time to put aside politics and do what is right.

As our very own president, Victoria Cobb, said at the 2008 Family Foundation of Virginia Annual Gala, "I believe that we can be principled and still be politically successful. This is still a great place to live and raise a family. I am not ready to give up on Virginia. You cannot give up either."
