Buz Snyder Obituary

 One of Buz’s legacies to our community was the establishment of an annual Canoe-A-Thon at Rocketts Landing to raise money for seeing eye dogs for the blind, eye exams and glasses for the needy, and state programs to prevent blindness.  The 20th Annual Canoe-A-Thon will be held this Sunday on May 6th so please help spread the word out to the local VMI community to support this event (by participating or donating) in a way to honor Colonel Snyder.  Event brochure can be seen here: Front PageBack Page.


 If you would like to help support the event and make a donation, please contact Will Harlan (Race Director) at 804-795-5715, will@harlanconstruction.com.  Here is link to the Varina Lions Club website http://www.varinalions.com/major-events/.
