I did not attend the meeting Wed night, because I have attended many, many similar meetings only to
waste time I could used to "do something" to
promote our heritage a culture. I am tired of wasting my time on meeting that do not accomplish things. I am curious if anytrhing concrete was actually accomplished.
For many years I have been on my white charger trying to promote the very earliest heritage and culture of Salem County, the Swedes and Finns who
built Fort Elfsborg in 1643, settled what later
became Penn's Neck when the English took over the area. I have tired without success since the year 2000 to get people in Salem County excited about this hitage, watched as the Township of Pennsville torn down the one thing that put Pennsville on the map, Rverview Beach Amusemnt Park, then pay megabucks more for just the land than what they would have paid for the park with all of the Amusements; watched them tear down the Redstrake House, a recognized historical buioding. Pennsville officials are allowing a super Wal mart deestroy the Sinnickson farm and have torn down the old
trolley barn, all in the name of progress.
Without the assistance of the Cultural and Heritage Commission, in 2004 I was finally able to get a monumet erected to these early Swedish and Finnish Settlers and also honor the Lenape, the original owners of our land. This event brought important digniatries into Salem county including the Swedish Ambassador, Consulate Genral of Sweded and a Lenape chief.
I challeng you, or anyone else being paid to promote our heritage or any other volunteer in Salem County to match the volunteer hours I have devoted to my Salem County. ButI want to see you piroduce results. When I see that you are I would be happy to attend and particpate in future meetings.
