Next, We Are Off To The Senate
to visit the Glacier Society
Bill #2585 was recently passed in a meeting of the House of Representatives.
Attached to the Defense Authorization Bill, House Bill #2585 and

Congressman Christopher Shays and Senators Christopher Dodd and
Joseph Lieberman. Having realized the historical value and scientific
potential involved in restoring GLACIER, Connecticutís major political
figures have been behind the Glacier Society from the start.

the parade. It was a fabulous, sun-filled day. All who participated
had a spectacular time.
