B of P Needs You! 

Published April 29, 2009 at 9:42 a.m.

I don't know why, but I found the following line in an email today hilarious:
"The Battle of Plattsburgh Commemoration Committee, originally formed in 1997, is in urgent need of more help if they are to maintain the quality of program that we have all become accustomed to over the past 11 years."

What's so funny about that? I have no idea. Nothing to the beleagured B of P folks over in P'burg. The commemoration weekend--surely not to be outdone by the Champlain Quadricentennial--includes all sorts of history-centric activities, including the intriguingly named Plucky Rooster contest. I'm thinking of entering, as soon as I find out what it is.

Seriously, though, the Battle of Plattsburgh was a turning point in saving us from British domination (I personally succumbed to the British Invasion of the 1960s, however). And btw, it was on 9/11. In 1814. And if these good folks need help keeping the history, spirit and plucky roosters alive, well, there are worse ways to serve your country.

If this has swayed any patriots' minds, contact Kit Booth at 518-563-4275 or Gary VanCour at 518-563-7077 for details. And check out this website.
