What attendees are saying....

Philly-2003- never to be forgotten, ever! The Holy Grail of Lewis and Clark found at last-found at last...of course I speak of the Journals at the APS. The geology, the artists, the woven fabric of Lewis in Philadelphia, all within a few hundred yards of Independence Hall. The Herbarium and the botanists, and topped off with the HEART of Lewis and Clark, Dayton doesn't get any better than that...Thank you are on the Honor Roll of our American Story...the Expedition of Northwest Discovery. Dick Brooks (For more from Dick, go to the article he wrote for a Maine website.)
(Dick was the first person to make hotel reservations for the meeting, so it is fitting he is the first one to publish a comment. Thank you, Dick!)

Thanks for the friendly hospitality we saw everywhere we went - I was indeed surprised by everyone's genuine graciousness and warm friendliness. Tom McCulloch

Thanks for making me aware of these photos. It was fun to relive the great time in Philadelphia. Jerry Garrett, St. Louis, MO

Everyone in Philly did an amazing job planning, organizing, and presenting this fine LCTHF event. We had a great time and learned so much about Lewis's stay in Philadelphia. Thank you foreverything! Kim Michael

The Philadelphia meeting was very enjoyable, and fun! Stephanie Begley

We especially enjoyed the dedication of the two plaques!!!!!!! Frank Muhly deserves so much credit for persisting in this endeavor. We think that those two plaques will create a lot of interest in Lewis Clark in Philadelphia. Just a note about the power failure for a few hours. Lewis and Clark managed very well without even a flashlight. Mary Skold

It was a great meeting and I love Philadelphia. Lucie Huger

Thanks for the website! Tremendous enjoyment...appreciate your sharing. Keevin & Dottie Arent

Friends: Callie and I agree that the presentors, the programs, the tours, and OF COURSE, the venue were all just excellent. Thank you so much for those years of hard work in preparation and for all you did during the meeting to make us all feel that we'd just had the true, historical Philadelphia experience. It was great to be there and be a part of it all. For that we are grateful to you all. Come see us now in Montana. Larry Epstein, former grand pooh bah, L&CTHF.
