On May 9, founder Denise Dennis met with Congressman Christopher Carney (D-PA) where she was warmly received. She briefed the congressman on the goals of the Dennis Farm Charitable Land Trust and asked for his support in seeking federal funding. Earlier that day, she met with Senator Arlen Specter's (R-PA) legislative correspondent for appropriations.

Congressman Carney and Senators Casey and Specter (through their staff members) have all responded enthusiastically to the DFCLT and have offered their support. The DFCLT's next step is to apply for the National Register of Historic Places designation, which we are doing.

 

 

 

In April, DFCLT founder Denise Dennis traveled to Washington for a Senate sub-committee hearing on funding for historic sites. She was part of a delegation representing the Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route (W3R) Association, which commemorates the American-French alliance during the Revolutionary War and their march from Rhode Island to the American victory at Yorktown. Earlier that day, Ms. Dennis met with members of Senator Robert Casey's (D-PA) staff to discuss funding possibilities for the Dennis Farm.
