    Simply because one must stay indoors and a safe distance apart does not require that one give up the civilizing influence of tea time with one's acquaintances!  Grab a cuppa, don your favorite hat, cap, or bonnet, and log on to Zoom (click here to open a free account) to join friends and members face-to-face via this convenient online platform.  Each gathering will have a different theme or topic and we welcome your company and conversation.  You must register in order to join the meeting but you do not need to be an RSV member in order to participate. Registration closes August 10.

    This week's theme: Researching the Regency.  Let's talk primary sources!  Share your favorites and come ready to discuss the best places to find and how to use our most direct connection to the early 19th century.

    Enjoy a weekend in the Regency era with other ladies as enthusiastic about the time as you are!  This 4-day/3-night event will be hosted at the beautiful North Point Plantation, an 18th century estate overlooking the Mattaponi River.  Period attire is encouraged (but not required).  Registration includes all lodging (shared beds) and meals for the duration of your stay.  We will indulge in early 19th century amusements and pursuits throughout the long weekend.  Space for this event is extremely limited so early registration is encouraged.  Registration will open for RSV members on March 6, and will open for non-members on March 13.  We are accepting both online and offline payments for this event.  Payments made by check will be granted a $10 discount, however, the check must be received no later than one week after registration in order to hold a spot at the retreat.  If you are unable to secure a space, be sure to add your name to the waitlist as we have often been able to pull from it in the past when a registrant is unable to attend.  Registration will close for this event on September 1.

    The RSV is delighted to have the opportunity to participate in the annual Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society (AAHGS) Conference being hosted in Hampton, Virginia this year.  As a part of the event, the organizers wish to create a timeline to share the positive contributions African-Americans have had throughout American history.  In keeping with the desires of the AAHGS, we are seeking to represent the Early Republic period with a group that is "diverse, ranging in age from young children whose  parents bring them along to events, to the elderly, and portray events consistent with present day understanding of African American history."  Period attire is required for this event and, in order to offer the most educational experience for conference attendees, must be as accurate as possible.  Please register no later than October 7 so we can gauge participation.

    Don't miss out on one of the highlights of the RSV year!  Join us for our annual Victory Ball, hosted once again at the beautiful Country Club of Petersburg.  Delight in a varied program of early 19th century dances, stirring music, excellent food, and (even if we do say it ourselves...) superb company.  You ticket includes admission to the ball with heavy hors d'oeuvres and a practice session the day of the ball.  Period attire is greatly admired but not required.  You do not need to be an RSV member to attend.  Get the latest updates by checking out our Victory Ball Main Page but be sure to register no later than October 10 since there will be no ticket sales at the door!

    Welcome the holiday season at historic Hope Plantation, built c. 1803!  We are looking for volunteers to demonstrate early 19th century dancing to visitors.  When we are not dancing, we are able to enjoy the music, house tours, and horse-drawn carriage rides that are available at the event.  This is a costume-required event.  Please register by December 3 to let us know that you are interested in participating.
