    Come one, come all!  You can now purchase tickets for our upcoming Victory Ball!


    Included in your registration ($35/members, $45/non-members) is, of course, dancing (called once again by the incomparable "Mr. Charles Steplively") and live music (from Dean Herington and Becky Ross), refreshments, and a "crash course" dance practice the day of the event.  Both Regency and modern semi-formal attire are welcome, so don't let the lack of period duds keep you from joining us!


    Registration closes October 14, so don't miss out!

    We're very much looking forward to spending an evening hearing a selection of early 19th century sea chanteys this Wednesday, June 14 at MacArthur Memorial Visitors Center.  Do join us for the FREE program, "Don't Forget Your Old Shipmates: Sailors and Sea Chanteys in the War of 1812."  Early 19th century attire is encouraged but not required.


    The RSV will be helping out by providing some period-inspired finger foods for the reception afterwards and we are looking to augment what our volunteers have already committed to bringing.  If you are available and willing to assist us by bringing a finger food for the reception, please contact us as soon as possible at info@varegency.org.


    We have also extended the deadline for registering for the Saturday, June 24 event commemorating the Battle of Craney Island.  Registration will now remain open until June 21 so that you may join us for our picnic on the grounds of Fort Norfolk.  Please do take advantage of the opportunity to spend a day in this often-overlooked Norfolk treasure!

    In honor of the bicentennial of James Monroe's first inauguration as President, the James Monroe Museum is hosting a reenactment of that event on March 4 on the campus of the University of Mary Washington.  Any RSV member who would like to participate is encouraged to register by February 28 in order to ensure that we get the relevant information to those who are planning to attend.  The event is free and those who attend in period attire will be welcome to stand behind the Presidential party at the podium during the ceremonies.  A reception will follow.  Click here to get more information and to register!


    That same weekend, on Sunday, March 5, the Moses Myers House in Norfolk is hosting their monthly "History Speaks" talk.  This month's subject will be what life was like for a young lady growing up in the early Republic.  You are welcome to attend in period attire.

    One of the exciting things that we discussed at our annual meeting was the possibility of taking a group trip to England in 2019.  We're still in the exploratory stages of this trip but likely destinations will be London, Bath, Lyme Regis, and Portsmouth.  Interested in getting the latest news on the trip?  Be sure to register on the events page!  Registration does not oblige you to go, it simply lets us know who's interested and gets you on a mailing list to receive updates on the trip as we get them.
