Shenandoah Valley has lost another of the greatest generation

By Lynn R. Mitchell

A sad loss this week for Polly Campbell, long-time volunteer for the Republican Party of Virginia and secretary of RPV’s state central committee for 40 years.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Polly and her family at this sad time with gratitude to Loren for his service to our country.
