PR & Communications
- Dawn Murphy has volunteered coordinate the LRA public relations and
communication efforts. She has already had information posted in the
Fairfax Times about the current Parkridge 5 exhibit and has been busy
making contact with other local newspapers and social media sites. This
should create more publicity for LRA and the many exhibits we have.
Within a very short timeframe, Dawn has already had a meaningful impact
addition to our current exhibition, we have three more exhibits planned
for the Parkridge 5 Building in 2013. Those exhibits have proved very
successful, with sales at every show last year and Turley-Cassidy, (the
Real Estate Company that manages Parkridge 5) is also publicity to their
tenant's about our changing shows at their sites. They have also
indicated that they may have 2 more buildings available for LRA exhibits
later this year after renovations are completed. In addition, we have
3 group exhibits at the Joanne Rose Gallery at the Lake Anne Community
Center and 2 exhibits at the USGS facility.

finalizing our mailing list for the new year and those who have not paid
2013 dues will be removed from mailing, but you can check the LRA web
