We did it!!!!  I contacted members of my roundtable and tonight our preservation officer made an announcement about what happened at Gettysburg.  He put it to a vote of the membership what to do with our monthly book drawing money.  It was decided to divide the money in half , half to reward and half to restoring the monumenrs.  We all donate books we have read and then the people's who's tickets are drawn can choose a book from the ones donated.  We raised 150 dollars tonight!!!!  I am sure some of the members will also send in their own checks.  I was so excited when I found out how much we raised.  We did not have a big crowd tonight. 

By the way I did win a book too Civil War Battle Flags. So it was a good night.
