The Fincastle Chapter is pleased to report that as of November 2012, we have raised $2,500.00 for the conservation of the Botetourt Dragoons flag!  Individuals, the Virginia Division UDC, and Virginia and General Clubs have made generous contributions to this project and we are excited to have such a quick start to our fundraising efforts.

Additional events and fundraising opportunities are planned for the future.  Please check here for more information on the flag project and how to donate.
