Virginia FairTax

Club Image


We need your help. The 113th Session of Congress will be convening shortly. Congressman Wittman was a FairTax Co-sponsor in the current session. It is important to our success this year that current Co-sponsors sign onto the new bill as soon as it is filed. We are also looking for support for a FairTax Caucus in Washington. Please go to Cong. Wittman's website at and click on the "Contact Rob" link and ask him to sign onto HR 25, the FairTax bill, as soon as it is introduced and also ask him to let Cong. Woodall's office know that he would support the creation of a FairTax Caucus. You can also call his local offices at: Yorktown - 757-874-6687 Fredericksburg - 540-548-1086 Tappahannock - 804-443-0668 or Washington, DC - 202-225-4261 Thank you for your help. 2013 is going to be a critical year for the FairTax.

           York-Poquoson Triad Offers Help with "File of Life" and "Yellow Dot," Wednesday,   January 16 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. York-Poquoson Triad is sponsoring an informative program to assist senior citizens in completing File of Life cards and Yellow Dot cards for emergency responders. To register call the Senior Center of York at 898-3807 by January 14.
            Over the years the York-Poquoson Sheriff's Office has distributed hundreds of File of Life packets to senior citizens. The File of Life is a miniature medical history card that seniors can place in a magnetized red folder and post on their refrigerators. The card enables medics to obtain a quick medical history when a patient is unable to offer one. The File of Life contains critical information for emergency medical treatment, including a patient's name, allergies, medications, contacts, insurance coverage and any special instructions. A door sticker alerts emergency personnel that the person has a File of Life and allows emergency responders to begin appropriate treatment immediately and not have to wait to obtain information from a confused patient or through other sources if the patient is unconscious.
A similar card called Yellow Dot is available for one's vehicle. The yellow dot is placed in the rear window to alert emergency responders that medical information can be found in the glove compartment.
Volunteers will be on hand to assist senior citizens in completing the File of Life Form. Interested persons will need to bring a list of medications and emergency contact information. A light lunch will be served.
            "Vinyl Memories," Wednesday, January 16 at 1 p.m.   Bring in your record albums - 45 rpm, 33 rpm, or 78s - and we will listen to them, and reflect on music from the decades of yesteryear. If you have a yellow spindle size adaptor on hand, bring that in too. Ron Herrick of Audio Visual Products and Calibration, Inc. will assist with this program. We will also enjoy music trivia, games, and prizes. Registration is underway and will end by Jan. 14 unless available space fills up sooner. Please give a list of your Top 10 Favorite Songs when you register!
           Culture Day, Poetry "Promises to Keep," Tuesday, January 22 at 1 p.m. Poet, author, and professor Hermine Pinson of the College of William & Mary will share and interpret excerpts of her vivid poetry collections from Ashe, Mama Yetta, Dolores is Blue/ Dolorez is Blues, and herCD, Changing the Changes in Poetry & Song.  Refreshments will be provided.  Please register at the Senior Center of York by calling 898-3807.

Class registration may be made in person at the Senior Center, by phone, or by mail. Note: AARP membership, which cannot be processed the day of a class, is not required for class registration. There is no "behind the wheel" driving performed in this program. Drivers age 55 or better must attend both classes to receive the state mandated three-year automobile insurance reduction. Many insurance companies are giving insurance reductions to drivers age 50+ with the same attendance requirements. Those less than age 55 should check with their insurance company to see if they are entitled to the three-year insurance reduction. Class enrollment is limited to 25.
          Calling All Veterans!  Have you ever served in our nation's military? If so, please consider participating in an informal panel discussion to share some of your experiences at one of the Senior Center of York's upcoming Culture Days. ALL of us have benefitted from the dedication, efforts and sacrifice of our uniformed men and women (and their families). MOST of us are very interested in the experiences of those who have served, but MANY of us know very little of what life was actually like in the military. So please drop by our front desk and complete a brief form so we can begin organizing this and hear some of your stories! It promises to be a very meaningful, touching, and at times, probably very humorous event, IF enough people sign up to participate. Thank you very much!
            Holiday Closures: For the holidays, the Senior Center of York will be closed on January 1 for New Year's Day, and January 21 for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. The Dining Club will reopen on January 2, 2013.
            Inclement Weather? Check out the Senior Center's hotline 890-3516 for information on emergencies and weather related closings and or delayed openings due to inclement weather.

Fw: Senate Bill 27 (Single License Plate)

Fellow VPCCC Delegates: Forwarded for your consideration – Please keep in mind that this can also be emailed – Simply copy, paste and fill in the blanks – Or alter as you see fit.
Sent: Thursday, December 20, 2012 6:03 AM
Subject: Senate Bill 27 (Single License Plate)

PLEASE take the time to share with EACH of your club members on this  important subject to your fellow hobbyists …

Attached is also a pdf of the same letter to help  "our" letter together and forward this to the VPCCC delegates and request they contact their members ..


Important Information About Single Plates for Va


Sample letter:


Dear Honorable (Virginia Legislator),


I urge you to vote for Senate Bill  providing for display of a single license plate on registered vehicles (S.B. 27 continued to 2013 in the Committee on Transportation). There are several excellent reasons for supporting this legislation.


First, eliminating the need for a front license plate will reduce the state costs associated with production, storage, and shipping by $2.3 million every year, according to the Department of Planning and Budget 2012 Fiscal Impact Statement. That money can be used to help balance the state budget or be earmarked for road maintenance.


Second, a front license plate is impractical on many vehicles. Modern cars are no longer designed with front plates in mind. Installing the mounting brackets that are necessary to hold the plate can interfere with the car's aerodynamics and engine cooling. They can also cause devaluation of some vehicles when drilling or otherwise modifying the front bumper is required.


Third, unnecessary damage can be sustained in minor bumper-to-bumper collisions, because the front mounting brackets on passenger cars can cause cracks and abrasions to the rear bumpers of the cars that they hit, as well as rendering the license plate unreadable.


Finally, police officers will be more productive in stopping dangerous motor vehicle violations such as drunk driving or reckless driving, since their time will not be compromised by stopping a Virginia motorist who simply did not have a front license plate on display.


Some law enforcement officials are opposed to abolishing the front license plate requirement, as they believe that losing the extra plate will make it more difficult for them to do their jobs in the best possible manner. However, in the 19 states that have abolished the front license plate requirement, there is no evidence of a decline in public safety as a result of the plate removal.


We the voters and general public of Virginia are appreciative of the law enforcement officers and law making officials of this great state and will continue to support them in their endeavor to make this state a safe place to live. We hope you will vote to give one plate a try in these tough economic times.


I urge you to vote to remove the two plate requirement.



Your Name



Thanks, Hal

Mr. Conrad:


I wanted to follow up one more time and let you know that the bill has been drafted and submitted and is now on the system as SB771 for the 2013 session.

Mr. Conrad:


I will suggest that to Senator Wagner. I know that the House & Senate Transportation Committees are meeting on 12/5 and one of the items on the agenda is the License Plate study. So, people should begin emailing their State Senators and Delegates right away.

Vicki, thanks for the reply, that is good news. Suggest to Frank that the money that is saved go to local and state police. I understand they are against the bill. That may help change their opinion. If there is any thing the local car clubs can do to help, please let me know.

Mr. Conrad:


I just wanted to follow up and let you know that Senator Wagner has officially requested a single license plate bill for this upcoming Session. He has been the patron to this bill in past Sessions as well. Based on the 2012 physical impact statement the single plate would actually save 2.3 million  ($$$) per year once in place.

There is another move afoot to get this bill passed. I understand the savings is between a $1,000,000 and a $1,500,000 a year. Maybe we could direct that money to I-264 which has to have more potholes than any other interstate in the state. Frank, we need your support on this. Please let me know where you stand and if you will help the collector car community on this. Also, if there is something we could do to help get this passed, please let me know. Thanks

Toyland Parade
This Week's Top Pick 

Parades are a spectacular joy during the holiday season that many look forward to watching, but this year everyone is invited to be part of the fun! This Saturday, December 15, after purchasing fresh produce, baked goods and locally produced art from the Yorktown Market Days, become a part of the Toyland Parade along Riverwalk Landing. Jump in with a decorated stroller or wagon or even yourself! Santa and Mrs. Claus will be greeting guests, The Fifes and Drums of York Town will be leading the parade, and the Polar Express will be chugging along.   

This Weekend's Top Getaway

Take a break from the holiday shopping, gift wrapping and decorating to spend an old fashioned weekend in Madison County. Your spirits will be immediately warmed by the rolling hills and valleys, the bountiful orchards and the pristine views of the beautiful nature that's found here. Bundle up and explore the Shenandoah National Park on foot, a peaceful way to rid your mind of the hustle and bustle. If you feel so inclined to do a little shopping, browse the fine collection of treasures found at The Blue Rooster featuring antiques and art, collectables and specialty candles. Continue the blissfully rustic experience at Brightwood Vineyard and Farm, a 100-acre family farm that practices sustainability and produces organic produce and free range eggs.    

White Chocolate Peppermint Mousse Cups
This Week's Recipe

One of our favorite ways to spend the holiday season is in the kitchen cooking up special treats made with love and wrapping them as gifts. Friends and family will be wowed and delighted to receive these White Chocolate Peppermint Mousse Cups. Making them is part of the fun, requiring bakers to blow up balloons and dip them in chocolate to form the edible shells. Melt-in-your-mouth, rich and creamy mousse makes these cute confections worth devouring at once, and a sprinkle of crushed candy cane leaves a minty afterthought.       

Gimme S'more
This Week's Drink
Remember those countless summer nights spent sharing stories around the campfire and making s'mores? Now you can have this same experience as an adult with a delicious concoction titled Gimme S'more. Patience here is key--the Graham Cracker Liquor (which you'll be making yourself) needs to sit for a few days in order for the flavors to properly meld. Add a little brandy and some hot cocoa and you'll be fondly remembering those campfire days in no time. Don't forget to top with a marshmallow that's been roasted on the stove!

This Week's Giveaway Bridal Show Jan
Are you planning a wedding in Hampton Roads and need some help choosing your gown and booking vendors? We're here to help!
