National Trust for Historic Preservation
 
Today, October 5, the National Trust for Historic Preservation announced this year's "11 Most Endangered Historic Places", and unfortunately, the Delta Queen made the list. You can see the entire list on their website, savingplaces.org. I believe that the boat made it on prior lists, too.

Being on this list is never a good thing, but at least it keeps the plight of the Delta Queen on a national stage. It's a good point to bring up when we talk to our members of Congress.

It's actually a good thing, as it provides a great talking point, and gives the boat national publicity.
Time in this congressional session is fast running out on us, I'm scared!

There's also a link in the story to send a message to your Senators and Representative asking for there support on the 2 bills.

re: Link to the story, please?
 
Mike,

Can you or someone please post the link to the story, or better yet, the link(s) to use when showing our support for the bills?

Thanks, Russ Ryle

*Story 'link'/Natl. Trust 'grants' procedures*
Morning, Steamboating colleagues:
Russ, you're right about asking for a "link to the story." Easy to go on your search engine to type in National Trust etc. and it should pop up with story about the "Endangered sites" etc. Other squibs appeared recently featuring a great color photo of the DQ taken by none other than Steamboats.orgs Franz Neumier.

I'm not sure but think Mike Washenko, Phil Johnson, and others directly involved, would know/remember if the DELTA QUEEN initiative has ever received any financial help via their [National Trust] grants process. My dismal understanding was their funds had been curtailed or limited--especially for marine projects. At times solid information comes in a bit 'foggy' if at all. Who knows? Again, the DQ a "private for profit enterprise outside of the public domain." Both Jo ann Schoen and Mike Washenko spoke eloquently RE: the DQ's plight at the September annual S&D of Pioneer Rivermen meeting. Who knows more on any Trust grants? Cheers!

Dale, the Delta Queen has not received any financial support from the National Trust in any way shape or form. However, they have been very supportive on the hill providing someone to help run the stops in Congress, going around and visiting with potential opponents and providing correct and accurate information about our beloved Queen.
