    Hi, Brian,
    I tried to find a regular e-mail address for this routine message, but was unable to, so feel free to delete it from the blog once you receive it.
    Thanks for all you do trying to preserve the historic Lincoln Highway and passing along info via the wonderful newsletter.
    We had interest in the March 11 Event in the Latrobe area, but were unable to find info via the links provided. I thought you may want to pass along that difficulty to the webmaster as it appears there’s no info there (or maybe I just didn’t find it)
    Sincerely,
    Forest & Aileen Grauel
    Burtonsville, MD and
    Falling Waters, WV
