Northumberland County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy John Beauchamp (pronounced “Beecham”) will be our chief speaker. Major Beauchamp will speak to us about the organization and functions of the Sheriff’s Office.
He also will talk with us about de-escalating confrontational situations. Several of our members have reported there have been some unpleasant encounters with members of the other party at a few polls.
These events may be of interest to our members.
Here is a list of future guest speakers for our upcoming meetings.
Chief Deputy Major John Beauchamp of the Northumberland County Sheriff’s Office will speak to us about the Sheriff’s office and law enforcement issues in the county.
To be determined. We hope to have a speaker to talk with us about farming in our county and on the Northern Neck.
Monty Deihl, Chief of Operations, Omega Protein, will speak to us about Omega’s operations, products, markets, contributions to the area, and other issues related to the menhaden fishing industry.
Our guest speaker is Honorable Robert Pickett, the Northern Neck Soil and Water Conservation District Director who will explain his role as the publicly elected person, serving the people of Lancaster, Northumberland, Richmond, and Westmoreland Counties.

Mr. Pickett’s talk will be followed by our monthly business meeting.
We are planning to have more speakers from the community including Sheriff Doc Lyons; Monty Deihl from Omega Protein; and, someone to talk with us about farming in Northumberland County.
First, the background. Northumberland County is in Virginia’s First Congressional District that allegedly is represented by Rob Wittman (Republican, Montross) in the US House. Wittman has done nothing for the First District. He was — until the Democratic sweep in November 2018 — chair of the Seapower Subcommittee of the House Armed Services Committee where he became the darling of the naval shipbuilding industry, who have donated close to $1 million to his campaigns, in spite of his claims that he does not take money from defense industries.
Now — today, January 13, Wittman — with a new beard and mustache — appeared on Fox where he made a fool of himself.
We hope everyone had a fine Christmas holiday season!! Now, it’s time to charge ahead into 2019 and 2020 — both years will have a critical election.
