Archaeology Class at Belle Grove Fundraiser
January 31st to February 7th

Last week, we had the honor of having Dr. Julia King, archaeologist who works with the Rappahannock Tribe visit us at Belle Grove. We are excited to announce that we are planning an archaeological dig in June 2023. The best part is this class will be opened to the public to come and learn about archaeology and the history of Belle Grove!

In order for us to schedule this class, we need to raise $3000.00 to pay the archaeologist to come teach the class. This is a small sum for an event that will make so much difference in how we view Belle Grove.

What I am asking is this. Tuesday, January 31st is my birthday. We are asking for 300 people to donate just $10.00. If we can get 300 people to step up and say history is important and deserved to be remembered, we can schedule this class for the second week in June.

Will you help me make my birthday wish come true? Will you be one of our 300 to help?
Please help us find our 300 by donating, sharing and liking our event. The deadline will be one week, February 7th.
Thank you for your support!
