Peace (R-Hanover) and Mrs. Anne Geddy Cross were recently appointed to serve on the Board of Trustees of the St. John’s Church Foundation. “As a native of Hanover County, I am pleased to contribute to the memory of our first Governor, Patrick Henry, as well as contribute to the joint marketing and economic development efforts of our area.
