WHAT MATTERS Warren – In this video with Stephen Horvath, learn about back-to-back upcoming golf tournaments on October 11 & 12, at Blue Ridge Shadows Golf Club in Front Royal, to benefit the Fire Fighter Cancer Foundation. Their mission: Advocacy, education, research, and direct financial relief to firefighters and their families affected by cancer.
The Virginia Chapter of the Fire Fighter Cancer Foundation was established in memory of Johnny Thomas, a Prince William County firefighter, who lost his battle with cancer. While he was unable to defeat this awful disease, his memory lives on, and loving volunteers and donors continue to provide hope to those in need. The FFCF provided assistance and education needed to make changes within the fire service. The Johnny Thomas Foundation has worked for years to make changes in Prince William County and provided direct assistance to those in need. The two foundations partnered and continue to focus their efforts to reduce carcinogen exposure, educate firefighters and leadership, support research initiatives, and improve the quality of life for those battling cancer.

“Degenerate Art”: The Peresecution of Modern Art and Artists in Nazi Germany
FOSL hosts this special fall art history lecture led by popular art history lecturer Ben Glenn Tuesday, October 29th at 6:30 P.M. Many people are unaware that, in 1937, a wildly popular art exhibition organized by Nazi “cultural ministers” toured Germany. Entitled “Degenerate Art,” the exhibition pilloried numerous 20th-century artists whose works were deemed as having no merit as well as being “against the State.” As a result, many objects exhibited subsequently were destroyed and the artists forgotten. Registration will open September 29th. Be sure to sign up early for this riveting evening of history and art.Seats for Ben Glenn’s popular lectures always fill up quickly.
