In conjunction with the celebration of the opening of our new WWI Gallery of the Stonewall Brigade Museum, the 116th Infantry Regiment Foundation is holding an Open House and BBQ at the Stonewall Brigade Museum, 566 Lee Highway, Verona, VA 24482. The event will be held Saturday JULY 15 from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM and the BBQ will be available 11:30 AM – 3:00 PM.  A suggested donation of $5.00 for the BBQ meal will benefit the Museum and other projects of The Foundation. In addition we will be hosting a “Community Family Yard Sale” at our site.  Details will follow shortly.

A Special Thanks to Rack’em Smack’em Ribs in Verona who is donating the BBQ food for the day. Please consider dining with them when looking to dine out in the Staunton Area. They are located approximately a half mile south of the museum at 385 Lee Hwy., Verona, VA.

FOUNDATION FRIENDS AND FAMILY SUMMER 2017 FUNDRAISER EVENT @ The Stonewall Brigade Museum
Jul 15 @ 8:00 am – 2:00 pm
“The 116th Foundation” will sponsor a fun day of Fundraising on Saturday July 15th, 2017.
While the Museum will host an Open House and Grand Opening for the WWI Centennial Exhibit; The Foundation will be selling a BBQ plate Lunch and hosting a LARGE MULT-FAMILY YARD/GARAGE SALE next door!
We are asking all past and present Volunteers, Board Members, Associate Trustees, Friends of the Foundation/Museum and their Families to participate in the Yard sale.
Each Family can bring a car or truck load or two of items they wish to sell and we will provide you a covered stall space to set up in. You may bring items Friday night before to store items for a quick set up Saturday morning.
The Yard sale will run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and be advertised heavily in the area. We expect large crowds of shoppers and Museum visitors due to our location on Route 11 and the ads.
We are asking that in exchange for the great space and opportunity to clean house a bit, that you share about half/50% of your sales as a donation to the foundation!
Think about it, if 10 Foundation Families each sell about $300 worth of yard sale items, The Museum could get $1500 if we all give half back…and the Family has earned some Dining out cash, plus had a fun day at the Museum and a great BBQ lunch!
Please Email me or call the Museum if you will help. Thanks!
