We were excited to hear about the President's Project at the first official meeting of the Thomas Jefferson Chapter. The project is the funding for the design development phase of the new interpretive signage in three areas along the new entrance road, the Poplar Forest Parkway, for Poplar Forest, Thomas Jefferson's retreat near Lynchburg, VA. Shown is National President, Mary Armstrong, holding a new children's book entitled Colonial Klaus in Thomas Jefferson's House, by Laura Macaluso. The proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to the project.
