Default National Trust for Historic Preservation email

I received the following email yesterday from the National Trust for Historic Preservation and thought I'd share:

Dear Friend,

We need your help! With Congress adjourning on December 12th, we have a narrow window of opportunity in which to return the historic Delta Queen Steamboat to overnight passenger service. As our countryís last historic steamboat, the Delta Queen is the last link to our nationís 200 year history of overnight passenger transportation. Legislation that would enable the Delta Queen to sail the Mississippi river system once again has passed the House of Representatives and is pending action in the Senate.

Time is running out this legislative session, so please urge your senators to support advancing S. 2924 before the 113th Congress comes to a close. Please call your Senators today via the Capitol Switchboard (202) 224-3121 and help us return the Delta Queen to our nationís waterways.

Thank you for letting your senators know that their leadership in saving the Delta Queen and our maritime history is important!

Sincerely,

Your friends at the National Trust

P.S. For more information about the Delta Queen and our campaign to save this National Treasure, visit http://savingplaces.org/treasures/delta-queen.
