Ladies and Gentlemen
We heard nothing from the city of Sorel regarding the project at the Riedesel house in Sorel. We assume hat there is no interests from the side of the city. Last year Mr. Aylmer Baker got into contact with a museum in Quebec City regarding a display of the Brunswick Troops in North-America. Mr. Baker did a wonderful job promoting the project. Different hearings in Ottawa went very positive and by December he project was still a go. By the middle of January the government changed and it looks now that we have to go through the same pocess again. Hopefully we will soon have the project on the way. Last years project to help out the Rose House helped to keep the museum open. This could have not been achieved without your help.
Today I am asking again for your help. It is another historical project what needs our help. As mentioned in the previous some of our members will participate in the re-enactment in Germany in October of this year. We will re-present the Brunswickers and North-America at the 200th anniversary of the battle of Jena. The hostorical battle-field did not change much over the last 200 years up o know. That will change soon. Our friends informed us that the city of Jena is planning to erect six huge windmills to generate power on the historical field. We are not against this form of generating power, we just think that a different location would be more suitable. The windmills endanger the local historical buildings, a rare species of a bird of prey and of course the historical field.
We need your help.
Please click on the following site to send of a letter of proes. The letter is pre-printed in German and will be send to the city of Jena. The text is as what I have mentioned above. Afer the site comes up fill in the following:
and your e-mail adress.
Than just click send and the letter is on the way.

Please help to save a very important piece of history.

Brunswick Newsletter November 2004
We have no news to report yet about the Sorel project. It seems the city
is moving very slow on the subject.
In October of 2006 a major re-enactment will take place in Germany.
The event will be the 200. anniversary of the Battle of Jena/Auerstaedt.
We are planning to go to Germany for the show. It would be a great opportunity
to visit Germany. We will keep you all informed.
