In Memory of John Trageser

John Trageser was truly an inspiration to us all. Over 35 years ago, he and his wife Novella, who is affected with retinitis pigmentosa (RP), joined the Foundation Fighting Blindness. For 31 years he served as Chapter President of the Central Virginia Chapter--the longest serving President of all 50 chapters. Sadly, John passed away on December 13, 2010 but his legacy will live on forever.

John and Novella first heard of the Foundation Fighting Blindness in a newspaper article about two students, Brian Hubbard and Ann Scott, at a nearby university trying to start a local chapter. They called and, shortly after, went to their first official chapter meeting in March 1975. They became very close friends with the chapter members including George & Irene Dolan, Carroll Hudson, Carolyn Matthews, Linwood & Ellen Fleming and others. Their tight-knit group of friends has remained at the core of the chapter since it began, and for over 30 years, the Tragesers have welcomed chapter members to their home for an annual picnic supporting the Foundation.

In the past few years, the Tragesers became involved in the Richmond VisionWalk and inspired their family, friends and neighbors to support the Foundation and its efforts through the walk. In fact, John and Novella inspired the creation of seven teams that participated in the inaugural Richmond VisionWalk. They were always happy to raise money for research that's so important to their family. "It's always been about the next generation," John once said. "It's never been about us."

John was thrilled with the great strides the Chapter and the Foundation have made since that first meeting almost four decades ago and through his work, we will continue in his footsteps.

This is another region where personal damage solicitors can help consumers understand their rights. * Winter Chills: Unfortunately biodiesel needs to be diluted with a solvent during the winter because it will freeze. Filing for a bankruptcy remains the most viable option under such circumstances for which you are advised to contact a bankruptcy lawyer.

If they say 'customers only' and threaten to tow any violators, you can be assured they will do so. Similar system is being put to another cargo ship named Micheal A and continuous efforts are being made to achive a higher level of robustness and reliability. Eventually, post-industrialization, they became a source for generating electricity.

DB: I have been friends of the owners at Christy's for over twenty years. 1st and farmost I strive for functional well fitted garments with a conscience. The problem lies in "maxing" out our credit cards, or having a barely affordable mortgage, or spending in other ways, in order to impress others.

In a time period where upheaval was the normal occurrence of many of the people then, Gothic art fell into the broad scope of medieval artwork that included such disparate elements and styles as Viking art and Celtic art, but in varying degrees relied upon the artistic heritage of the Roman Empire and the early Christian Church. If you can play breed speed about 5 times, then you can get about 2000-3000 Foo - Gems easily. Everybody has said they want to be a vampire; I'm not sure if that's because of True Blood, or Twilight, or whatever other popular vampire things out there right now.

A Pierre Cardin orange coat and matching dress ensemble from 1968-69 will fetch between seven and eight thousand pounds. "The Literary Genius" and "Wyoming" have lots of options for fabric to choose from to fit your personality and are made from scraps so no 2 are alike. Biggie is a shy cuddly guy while Betsy is a social butterfly.
