First Call! A Celebration of God and Country


Reserve Now:  Early Bird Seating for Tables Only

What, When, and Where

This is our First Call for Early Bird table reservations to the 16th annual Shenandoah Valley “Salute to the Family” dinner, which will be held from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m., Friday, May 19, at the JMU Festival Conference and Student Center in Harrisonburg.  This year’s theme is “A Celebration of God and Country”!   See below for reservation details.

He’s Back!  Bishop E.W. Jackson

We are delighted to welcome back one of our very favorite speakers and a close friend of the Forum, Bishop E.W. Jackson.  He will always be remembered for the electrifying message he delivered at our 2011 dinner.

He followed that up with a run for the U.S. Senate in 2012, and then again in 2013 as a candidate for Lt. Governor of Virginia when he won 70% of the vote in Rockingham and Augusta Counties.  For his clarion calls for Truth, the Forum presented him with its prestigious Daniel Award in 2014.

Bishop Jackson is a Marine Corps veteran, a Harvard Law School graduate, a pastor, and the founder and president of S.T.A.N.D. (Staying True to America’s National Destiny).

His passion for God and Country has taken him across America as a powerful voice for our Judeo-Christian heritage, for our Constitutional principles, for our God-ordained rights of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, and more recently for “A New Christian Awakening” in America.

The dinner will also include special music and presentation of our annual Wilberforce and Daniel Awards.
