Greetings...

On December 2, we will hold a benefit for the USS Constellation at the historic Maryland Theater in Hagerstown, MD.

The event will begin with a concert by the 28th Penna. Regimental Band.  After a brief intermission, we will show Gone With the Wind on the "big screen" in this 1915 historic theater.

Ok....GWTW is not a CW documentary....but watching this American icon in a theater that existed in 1939 when it first came out, is a rare slice of Americana that we only rarely have the opportunity to experience in today's society.

Tickets are $25, and all proceeds go to the restoration of two Parrott Rifles to the ship's spar deck.

Tickets can be had by calling the theater during business hours at 301-790-2000, or visiting their website at http://www.mdtheatre.org and clicking on "Marquee".   Walk up sales are also available during business hours, and the box office will open at 6 pm  the night of the event for walk-up sales.

Please support this worthy event!

Thank you for your consideration.   Steve Bockmiller
