MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR 2008!

December has been a very busy month!  As Chairperson (for the 9th year now) of the Jesse Tree Project at St. Catherine of Siena here in Wilmington, we provided  Christmas gifts and food to 19 families - the last gifts were delivered today, Christmas Eve!

During the month, both the Centreville School and Delcastle High School ordered additional copies of the books, and I had three presentations to the 7th graders at Brandywine Springs Elem. School.  The topic of these presentations was Oral Histories and Personal Narratives.  Many students bought copies of the books as did some of the staff.  Many thanks to teacher Jean Hall for the invite and delicious lunch!

In January, I will be presenting to the 4th grade students at Avon Grove Charter School in Avon Grove, PA.  In February I will be at the Woodlawn Library in Wilmington speaking to the Delaware Genealogy Club on the History of the Orphan Trains, as well as how to research a rider.  This event is open to the public and will be on the 19th at 7:00 pm.  March 1st is the Delaware Women's Conference where I will have a table of books for sale and signing, and on April 19th I will be at the Pike Creek Christian School for their Book Fair.  I will post additional events as they are scheduled.

The 3rd book in this series, OLIVER'S CHILDREN, is underway.  I am on the 4th chapter, although I did not have much time to write during December.  January and February will find me hard at work with researching and writing!  Many thanks to my father Benjamin and his brothers Jim and Oliver for their contributions to this effort. 

BEST WISHES FOR ALL GOOD THINGS IN THE NEW YEAR!

I came across a website that is focused on discussing the value of traditional college degrees in the American educational system.
