Rally is Family Event!

Posted by Admin On 3/12/2015
Haven't marked your calendar for April 18th?  Well, now is the time!  Put Kids First Rally is a family friendly event where kids will enjoy many activities, as well as participate in making history in the capitol of Virginia!

Nutsy The Flying Squirrel, mascot for San Francisco Giants Double A Baseball affiliate in Richmond, will be available for autographs and pictures at Richmond Convention Center, our Staging Area.  Also planned: Bouncy House, 18 Foot Tall Slide, Bouncy House Obstacle Course and more.

Thank you to our NEA for contributing $50,000 for buses to get supporters of Virginia's students to Richmond!  VEA is organizing the buses to transport participants (kids, too!) to the Richmond Staging Area.  We'll meet at the School Board Offices parking lot in time to load buses at 12:30 P.M. and plan to return to Stafford around 6:00 P.M.  Leave the driving to VEA!!!  Of course, if you'd like to drive yourself, we suggest you carpool and meet up with the buses before they pull out.

Be sure to fill out a commitment card or register on the Put Kids First web page.  You can also find additional information on their website, including promotional materials to handout to all of your family and friends.  Consider asking the businesses you frequent to share information with their employees and customers.  Don't have a commitment card?  Contact your building representative or call SEA/VEA at 540-361-7011.
