Fifty-two CWRT members and friends spent Saturday morning, April 25, working at the Leister House property brush cutting and rebuilding fence lines in the fields just south of the home that served as General Meade’s Headquarters during the battle. Our Round Table has served as a conservation force at the Park since before the inception of the Adopt a Position Program.
As with any endeavor a great number of people deserve kudos for efforts to make the day a success. Dick Jacoby again organized the dismantling and rebuilding of the fences on top of the low stone walls that bounded the property. John Duffy and his stalwarts of Scout Troop 89 of New Tropoli were the major part of that effort. Pat Matthews once again brought her hard charging compatriots from the Whitehall Historical Preservation Society and worked the wall like brush cutting demons. Allen Handwerk and CWRT member Sam Parker ran their gas powered weed trimmers like men possessed. Member Bob McHugh’s AP students from Saucon Valley High School cleared an entire swale/hillock of brush. Round Table members, Kay Bagenstose, Chuck Cannon, Mike Cavanaugh, Bill Frankenfield, Kim Jacobs, Claire Kukielka, Tony Major, Bob McHugh, Ed Oechsle and Sam Parker all more than earned their pay which is “in the mail”. Thanks also to CWRT family members Jacob and Daniel Weaver and Emily and Stu Schenkel who brush and fenced. Kay also brought the books from the Round Table supply for the free raffle to thank our volunteers and Bob McHugh’s group for bringing water, ice and coolers to keep us all going. Amanda Whitmore of Gettysburg NMP was our contact for the work day. Chris Gwinn of the Park Staff gave us all a rare treat with not only a program about the Widow Leister and what occurred at her home during and after the battle, but access to the home.
Thanks to one and all!
