Dear Lord Scott,
I just wanted to thank you for hosting
the picnic in Prescott! It was such a wonderful afternoon, everything about it
was splendid. I enjoyed the company as well as the games, which supplied many
laughs, as well as a bonk on the head. :D Picnics are one of the more
adventurous activities you can convince your friends to join you in,
unfortunately not many people are willing to do the organizational part of
them, so thank you for providing one for all of us to enjoy! I've been trying
to decide if I enjoy the periodic balls or picnics more, and I have to tell
you I'm having a hard time because they are both so enjoyable, its hard to
place one superior to the other. I hope that you will be having several more
picnics in the future, as I will jump at the opportunity to attend them. Thank
you so much for all the energy and enthusiasm you put behind these lovely
outings, they will long last in my memory.
Miss Sarah S. Humboldt,
Dear Lord Scott,
Thank you for all of the hard work you and
your wife put into these wonderful, educational get-togethers. My friends and
I have a wonderful time and made lasting memories. It is wonderful meeting
new people and growing relationships with others. May the Lord continue to
bless you and your family.
Miss. Caitlin O.
Dear Lord and Lady Scott,
I so enjoyed the picnic, as did my
grandmother. I am so glad she was able to come. And the Lord did bless us
with such a beautiful day for it! Thank you for all you do to plan and host
these functions! I so appreciate your standards and your heart to serve
families in a Christlike way!
I enjoyed all of the activities of the
day, and the chance to meet and visit with the other people in attendance.
What a delight it was, too, to become more
acquainted with your family! You have a genuine quality that is hard to find
these days. Your children are very fortunate to be raised with the
Christ-centered standards that you possess in such a world as we live in.
They are delightful children! Please greet them for me.
I look forward to the next We Make History
Together with you in His body and
Miss Hollie H. Camp
Part of the object of our picnic was to remember and discuss
the 230th Anniversary of the beginning of the American Revolution.
History Lesson: Lexington, Concord & Basic Freedoms
April 19th, 1775 will be the 230th anniversary of the beginning of the
American Revolution. On that day in 1775, immediately subsequent to the
"midnight ride" of Paul Revere and a night of marching by British troops,
the first battles of the American Revolution were fought at and around
Lexington and Concord in Massachusetts.
But why were Americans willing to assemble and fight then and there? It is
surprising how few of their latter day countrymen know the answer to this
question in 2005.
The British Army had two objectives on that fateful day. The first was to
to Lexington and surprise and arrest Samuel Adams and John Hancock for their vocal
criticisms of British policy. The second objective was to march on to Concord and
seize arms and ammunition which belonged to the citizens. Whatever other
causes (and there were many) which may have helped to lead up to the
Revolution, Americans fought that day for freedom of speech and for the
right to bear arms. It should be no surprise then that after Independence
was won these two freedoms were included in the "Bill of Rights" of the
United States Constitution.
Remember these freedoms next time you see peaceful protesters (whether you
agree with their viewpoint or not) and when you hear of citizens in the
border region concerned about defending their homes and communities (again
whether you agree with their viewpoint or not).
