New charitable gaming regulations

Being located on the Eastern Shore of Virginia where both of our counties of Accomack and Northampton are considered to be rural communities with limited resources available to many area programs benefiting our youth, homeless, needy, and veterans. With that being the case our lodge has donated over $100,000 a year for many years to these programs and projects. If the gaming regulations are changed and our monetary resources are reduced many programs such as college scholarships, fire & rescue departments, local food banks, citizens with limited medical coverage and so on will be greatly and adversely affected. Please don’t change the current regulations so we can continue to make a positive difference in our community.
