A fundraiser to “Save the Lake” — and lobby the General Assembly to keep Virginia’s ban on uranium mining — has been set for next Friday, Sept. 6 at 6:30 p.m. at the Clarksville Community Center.

Hosted by Ken Morgan, Charlie Simmons, David Dunn and John Cannon, the event will include a discussion on just where the push to lift the moratorium on uranium mining in Virginia now stands, and why uranium mining could be devastating to Buggs Island/Kerr Lake

Expected on hand to lead the discussion are Tom Leahy, Director of Virginia Beach Public Utilities, Del. Thomas C. Wright, Jr., state Sen. Frank Ruff and Andrew Lester of the Roanoke River Basin Association.

Participants are asked to RSVP by emailing reservations and sponsorships to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or by mailing in their reservation to The Virginia Coalition, P. O. Box 562, South Boston, CA 23492. Checks should be made payable to the Roanoke River Basin Association, a 501(c)(3) organization.

I think that the taxpayers of Mecklenburg need tax increases to pay for billboards and ad's like their friends in Halifax co. Cannon & company don't visit for free. Better brace yourself Clarksville. Hey, you might get lucky and get a visit from anti-Jack Dunavant!!!!!
