Here you will find a variety of copies of letters, minutes to meetings, etc. The topics will vary and will be of general interest to the public.
This first set of minute meetings & letters relates to Children of Shenandoah in that the Shenandoah National Park Superintendent, Douglas Morris was either at the meetings or wrote the letter. Additionally, these minute meetings document discussion of some of the same issues Children of Shenandoah are currently working on. For example, apparently the cemeteries which are an issue now with Children of Shenandoah has been an issue with The Blue Ridge Committee for Shenandoah National Park Relations since (at least) May 1999, probably sooner. (See minute meetings below). The Shenandoah National Park always drops the ball.
The Blue Ridge Committee for Shenandoah National Park Relations is not a part of the Children of Shenandoah. Although they are a separate organization, they too are comprised of representatives from the same 8 county area surrounding the Shenandoah National Park as the Children of Shenandoah are. And apparently are dealing with similar issues and concerns. The Blue Ridge Committee for Shenandoah National Park Relations was appointed by Congressman George Allen for "watch dog" purposes, so to speak. These meetings are open to the public and each county can have 3 representatives. It is very relevant to Children of Shenandoah and we all should attend, perhaps unite forces.
