On May 9, founder Denise Dennis met
with Congressman Christopher Carney (D-PA) where she was warmly received.

Trust and asked for his support in seeking federal funding. Earlier that
day, she met with Senator Arlen Specter's (R-PA) legislative correspondent
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
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.
