THANKS for the Brown Bess!
« on: December 14, 2010, 06:21:44 PM »
I wanted to take a moment to publicly thank Anne Arundel Fish and Game Assc members,  Bob M for the donation of a replica Brown Bess and Bill P for the loan of a replica Brown Bess bayonet for use in the history portions of the Appleseed Project classes held at the club!  Way to go guys!  Yet another example of Americans seeing the value of the Appleseed Project and stepping forward to support it, in ways big and small!

We'll take good care of it, and it will most definitely provide an excellent visual aid to teach the students about their history and heritage! Now I'm going to have to figure a way to transport it in the car, as it's taller than I am....LOL...
