We're happy to report that we were able to accomplish what we set out and more this past weekend at the Untold Stories conference. Attendance for the Panels, the Mass and the Reunion was well over 400. Attendees travelled from 9
different states and provinces, one as old as 97.
There were many new friendships made as well as family and community ties strengthened. Many people came away with a much different picture of WWII than the one they entered with. Please send us your feedback, if you haven't arleady.
The Am-Pol Eagle, in this week's addition features the following pieces on the conference:
-a front page article,
-an opinion piece,
-a letter to the editor
-a photo gallery
Find it at:
Paper copies can be purchased at many Tops and Wegmans markets or by subscription.
Also, we're getting to work on a DVD of the conference, on updating our website and on planning future events, including a gathering for All Saints/All Souls Day on Nov. 1.
Details to follow shortly.
Thanks for your help and support and please spread the word about our work to anyone you think may be interested.
