REMINDER: Tomorrow night, Tuesday, October 21st, the request from the Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History to Danville City Council, asking that the Memorial Third National Flag on the grounds of the Sutherlin Mansion be removed, will be discussed immediately following the 7:00 City Council Meeting, in a closed session. The City Council will then reconvene and discuss the request in a public session
The folks in Danville have requested our help in two ways:
1) CALL CITY COUNCIL TODAY, and politely but firmly ask them to honor the 1994 Resolution AND Virginia State Law, and REFUSE the request of the Museum Director to remove the memorial. A list of contact numbers is provided below.
2) Attend the council meeting tomorrow night. We need to pack the meeting with supporters and send City Council a strong message. We are asking all who can, to meet at the Courthouse at 6:00 and take a seat early.
