Soldiers Weekend & Lecture

Two upcoming events worth note:  A Historic Soldiers Weekend will be held at Fort Mott, New Jersey on September 28th and 29 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  There will be an encampment and several authors will be there.  Also there will be numerous period vehicles on display.  The Address is Fort Mott, 454 Fort Mott Road, Pennsville, NJ 08070  This is a 'timeline' event which means more than one military period will be on display.
For more information go to:  Soldiers Weekend.com
or call Fort Mott at (856)935-3218

I got this information for an old buddy, Jeff M. at the Burlington County Historical Society, Corson Poley Center in Burlington.  My friend Barbara Solem and I were at the Wood Street Arts and Crafts Fair there after going to the Vegetarian Picnic at Long Bridge, earlier in the day.  We dropped in so Barb could look at some manuscripts in their collection in regard to Atsion, where she is a docent, and Batsto, about which she is writing a book.  I mentioned how sorry I was that I had missed the lecture series this year and he told me there was one coming up:

SEPT>29th from 2-4, hear Alan Jeffe about the Chein Toy Company with a display of Chein Toys at the museum.  The fee is $5 with light refeshments and there is a Q and A following the lecture.  I have always very  much enjoyed the lectures in their series , so if you are looking for something to do that day, which is a Sunday, hope you decide to come over.  

So there are two good weekend events for the upcoming month of September.  The weather is great for being outdoors!  ENJOY
Happy Trails, Jo Ann
