Annual Fishing Outing “Lures” Young Anglers

On June 12, thirty-two residents and staff left campus bright and early to travel to Smithfield for a day of fishing.  For many it was the first time they held a rod and reel in their hands, baited a hook and cast a line.  Residents headed to their special fishing hole, and volunteers retrieved lines of out the trees and tall grass.  When asked, they even removed the catch from the lines of squeamish fishers.

This annual fishing trip is a day that the boys and girls always enjoy, but “Hannah” was most the excited of them all.  She landed the biggest fish of the day!

Don Lancaster, host of the radio show Fishing Tidewater, conducted a quick “Fishing 101” giving the boys and girls the benefit of his vast fishing knowledge.  Old Point National Bank, longtime host of this event, provided the rods, reels, bait and tackle in addition to underwriting the cost of a cookout.

KAINE STATEMENT IN COMMEMORATION OF JUNETEENTH

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement in commemoration of Juneteenth:

“On this day 150 years ago, Major-General Gordon Granger rode into Galveston, Texas bearing news that would fulfill the Emancipation Proclamation's promise of freedom. As word broke that the war had finally ended, people began to celebrate the end of slavery in the South. This day has become known as Juneteenth, and a century and a half later, Juneteenth celebrations continue.

“This Juneteenth, we solemnly pay tribute to the victims of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church shooting in Charleston and all those who have fought and died in the name of justice. For nearly two centuries Emanuel AME has been a symbol of the struggle for freedom, equality and human rights in our country.

“The end of the Civil War marked the start of a new chapter in American history, a chapter finally clean of slavery's stain. But, the fight for freedom did not end on June 19th, 1865 – it was only beginning. Those who were finally free from slavery, and their descendants, still had to fight for more than a century to break down educational, political and economic barriers erected to block them from full participation in American life. Even today, we see a nation that has twice elected an African-American President still struggling with economic inequality and challenging disparities in our criminal justice system.

“Juneteenth reminds us of how far America has come in its march towards a more equal society, but also how far we have to go. Even though struggles for freedom and equality still exist today, we know from the past that opening doors of opportunity to all Americans will make us a stronger nation going forward.”
