The above two items have a long varied history in our Club and have been a source of great fun and fellowship. The original Thunder Mug and Veep were presented to the Richmond Club by club members Hugh McCue and Jim McCracken. (See the presentation letter) The second Thunder Mug, a replacement of the original one, which silently disappeared, was handcrafted by the widow of one of our past Presidents in her husband's honor. The original Veep was accidentally damaged and  was replaced by PP Wilbur Walrond on 2004.
