Fredericksburg Area Chapter
2016 Scholarship Information
Each year, the Fredericksburg Area Chapter of the Virginia Tech Alumni Association awards scholarships to deserving high school seniors from our area who will enter Virginia Tech as freshmen in the fall. The criteria used for selecting scholarship winners include academic achievement, active participation in school activities and community volunteer activities. Those interested in being considered should complete this application and submit it using the instructions included on the application.
Did you know that we maintain an online Hokie Business Directory for the Fredericksburg area? We don't have many businesses listed yet, but we hope the directory will grow as more people find out that it is available. If you're a Hokie (or related to a Hokie) and want to get your business listed, the "how to" information is on the directory web page. We are planning for this to be FREE during a trial period, and then possibly cost $25 a year. This would support our scholarship fund and other chapter activities.
We now have a group page on Facebook. You can visit our page and join us by clicking on the Facebook logo. You can also follow us on Twitter at @FxbgHokies.
Please help us keep you informed about Virginia Tech and the Fredericksburg Area Chapter of the VTAA by letting us know your email address. Click here to get on our email list. This is a confidential list, and your e-mail address will not be shared. Only Hokie related mail will be sent.
November 26th -- Game Watching Party -- Hokies vs. Virginia -- Join us at Home Team Grill (located in Eagle Village) as the Hokies take on the hated Virginia Cavaliers in the annual Battle for the Commonwealth Cup! We will have a private room reserved. Kickoff is scheduled for noon, and the room will open at 11:30AM. Home Team Grill is donating 10% of all non-alcohol sales to our scholarship fund, so come join us to watch the game with fellow Hokies and support our scholarship fund! (Even if you aren't in the private room, be sure to tell your server that you are with the Fredericksburg Hokies so we get credit for your purchases!)
December 5th -- Chapter Meeting & Dinner -- Join us for our regular bi-monthly Chapter meeting at Home Team Grill, located in Eagle Village, across Route One from UMW's campus. We have a private room reserved, and will have dinner at 6:00 PM, followed by our Chapter meeting at 7:00 PM. Please come out and learn how to get more involved with your Chapter!
December 10 & 11 -- HFFI Candlelight Tour -- The Historic Fredericksburg Foundation, Inc. (HFFI) will conduct its 2016 Candlelight Tour on Saturday, December 10 and Sunday, December 11 in downtown Fredericksburg. There are five homes on the tour this year. In years past, the Fredericksburg Hokies have helped coordinate volunteers to man the barricades and assist at street crossings. HFFI has reflective safety vests that will be issued to Hokie volunteers. (These vests may be decorated with Hokie swag!) Each Hokie volunteer will earn a free tour ticket and may purchase up to five additional tickets at a discounted rate of $10 each. (This is a great value, as tickets are regularly priced $30 each!) If you are interested in volunteering or would like additional information, please contact Jim Brown at 540/840-7695 or at email@example.com.
