TCN Fundraiser

We’re a little more than halfway through my July fundraiser and I want to thank you for your support. I also want to thank the folks at ITS Virginia who invited to be their luncheon speaker today at their annual meeting in Richmond. It was great meeting some long-time readers and gaining a few new ones, too. Happy 20th anniversary, ITS Virginia!
