Cynthiana Battlefields Foundation!

Well, after several months of trying to reach folks who might be interested in forming a friends/preservation group for the battles at Cynthiana, we held our first meeting of the Cynthiana Battlefields Foundation this past Saturday at Biancke's Restaurant, and over a dozen folks turned out, including several locals.  While we might not have covered as much as I would have liked to have delved into, we did get a good start, agreeing upon an organization name and looking at some immediate projects to increase awareness for those visiting Cynthiana.  While there is a lot for this group to take on, from redesigning the driving tour, to enhancing the tour stops, to starting the process of forming a non-profit, to preserving and interpreting battlefield property, at the very least there is now an interest locally.  

Our next meeting will be at 2:00 p.m. on July 31st in Cynthiana, location to be determined.
