The AMtY Route is still in motion........

Greetings Patriots and Friends of AMty....

Tis a pleasure to be able to address you all once again. Most of us are still waiting for Spring, to spring!!
About a year ago, I was in the throes of charting the Northern Route of the Rochambeau/Washington route, with designs that we might soon be walking upon it. Of course, that is all history now, the March itself was completed, but the work is going on. Here is an update of upcoming activities that will involve the members of AMtY.....
Of course, most of you are aware of the National Leeadership Conference of the W3R, being held in Baltimore, Maryland, this Saturday. Members of the AMtY road gang (Rose, David, Mike and Dave) are expected to be there, perhaps as early as Friday to attend a news conference as well.
Here, in east-central Connecticut, an AMtY presentation on the experiences of the Marchers while on the March will be held in the Andover Elementary School Cafeteria, Sunday, April 22nd at One of the Clock in the Afternoon. The event has been noted locally, with many invites going out to area Historical Societies. I am told the response has been very postive. The school is located on Rt. 316, in Andover, Ct. The event is open to the public and all interested parties are invited. We expect Richard, Rose, David, Mike to be on hand. Also, Serge Gabriel will be on hand to present a short talk on the French committment to the American Revolution.
On Wednesday, April 18th, both Richard and David will be giving a chat on the Wayne Norman radio show, in Wyndham, Ct. (Camp #4) The show will run from 7-9:00 AM and can be heard on WILI Radio, 1420 on the AM dial.
As you can see, tis a busy month of April for the AMtY group. Now, I haven't taken a look at the statistics lately, but we know that just two months ago, the AMtY web-site was still receiving some 30,000 hits a month, that is incredible. Particularly since the actual walk has been over since October! Please be assured that, because of the excellent donations from our supporters, the web-site will remain on-line for some years to come.
If your group is having something of interest concerning the W3R, let us know and we will post it.
Wishing you all the best, with a fervent desire for Spring to appear.......

I Remain,
At Your Service,
Richard Swartwout
Chair, AMtY
