Year in Review
The Year 2007 capped off our first decade together and we were busy from start to finish. That included the busiest Memorial Day ever with five straight days of activity starting with our very first trip to historic Green-wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, followed by the Memorial Day parade in Hempstead, and then three straight days at the Syosset School Program. In addition to our traditional staples of Neshaminy, Cedar Creek, and the Living History at Gettysburg, we returned a second time to Fort Mifflin and after a six year absence, marched in the NYC St. Patrick’s Day parade. Your Correspondent made a couple of solo trips, one to participate in the surrender of General Twigg’s troops at the Alamo and then a swing through sites around Richmond, VA. Sadly, we lost our very first member this year, Founding Father John Ernest. Despite the loss, we finished off the season with a grand 10th Anniversary celebration at the Carrol Valley lodge in Fairfield during Remembrance Day weekend.
