03-20-2006, 08:17 PM

I just wanted to give you all a bit of information about what's going on.

1. The state has approved the Zouave Monument Fund.

2. The NPS superintendent, Dr. John Latschar, sent us a letter today thanking us for our help, and our commitment, and giving us the approval of the Gettysburg National Military Park and NPS to follow through with all of our fundraising efforts.

3. Please send those donations to:

Zouave Monument Fund
565 Elm St.
Gettysburg, PA 17325
Make out any checks to the "Zouave Monument Fund".

4. Thank you, VERY MUCH to Jeff Rodriguez, Paul Boccadoro, Scott Kubay, Marc Hermann, Gary Mandell, Bernadette Atkins, and the members of the 23rd PA Volunteer Infantry Reenacting Group for their donations.

5. Gregory Coco has agreed to be one of the 2 speakers at our fundraising dinner & silent auction this Spring. The date will be finalized very soon.

6. Photographs of the reset bronze zouave statue can be found online at http://www.114thpa.com/photo2.html

7. A duplicate of the head of the Smith's Battery monument can now be made, as a copy of the artilleryman statue was recently found at a Northern cemetery.

8. There are no leads on the culprits, but there is still a $36,000 reward for info leading to the arrest and conviction of the vandals.

Thank you for your time, your donations, you help, and for caring,
