Today's our Celebrate Yorktown Committee meeting, and I'll be able to announce that 1000 copies of the Yorktown Self-guided Walking Tour have been printed and ready for distribution. I chaired the committee to write this, so it's been quite a labor of love for me (emphasize labor!)

I have a "guide" in each room for guests' use here or to take with them into the historic town of York. The walking tour takes about an hour and a half, not including time a guest might spend at each of the 50 or so sites included on the map. We had to struggle to keep the number of interesting places to about 50 and, even worse, to keep the descriptions of each building or site to 30 words or less! I hardly get started in 30 words!
