The Vangie Williams campaign likes to tell the story of Miss Daisy and the funeral. If you haven’t heard it, ask Joel Leonard. He tells it best.
Anyway, Miss Daisy, a Westmoreland County matriarch of sorts, turns 79 this month and wants to celebrate with a cookout and pickle-jar fundraiser for Vangie.
You can get the details at Vangie’s campaign Facebook page, but it’s a week from tomorrow, 18 August, from 1300 to 1700 at 447 Wilson Drive, Sandy Point, Virginia. I plan to attend and write a check. Please join in, and knock a few doors for Vangie on your way over.
