If powder house could talk, it would say 'Thanks'

(Continued)

“May I close my remarks, folks, by saying I never thought I was the White House or the Brooklyn Bridge, and fully realize I was just one of many buildings that can be found in many cities and towns that could have been forgotten, but fortunately, there were enough volunteer citizens in our town that did not let me fade into history. Yes, they gave me a brand-new life and a new role to play in educating our youth, as well as documenting our history. I promise I will do my best to fill this role. In the meantime, just in case you do not know where I live, just drive east on Low Street, and as you drive by our National Guard Armory, look up the hill. You can’t miss me, as I am round and look like an ice cream cone. Yep, if you stop and gaze at me, who knows, I may wink at you, and if you visit, I’ll be proud to show you how well I’m put together. One last thought I’d wish to share, and that is ‘Thank you one and all’”!
