“Raise the Alarm”!

We are happy to share this post from our friends at The Friends of Minute Man National Historical Park

Minute Man National Historical Park needs your help.logo-sm

The Friends of Minute Man National Park have a chance to win $250,000 to preserve the 1775 Parker’s Revenge battle site and to transform the adjacent, historic Hargrove Barn for classroom use.

Twenty national park units – out of more than 400 – have been selected to compete for funding in a nationwide, online voting campaign which just kicked off. This effort – “Partners in Preservation: National Parks” –  is a partnership between the National Trust for Historic Preservation and American Express. We are competing against other National Parks such as, Yosemite, Grand Canyon and Zion.

We are asking our supporters to register and vote by going to the National Geographic voting portal:   www.voteyourpark.org/minuteman and cast their votes every day between now and through July 5.

All voters will be entered in a sweepstakes to win a trip to Yellowstone National Park courtesy of National Geographic.

It is a tremendous honor to have been selected as one of the 20 participating national park areas.  NOW, WE ARE URGENTLY REQUESTING THAT YOU VOTE FOR MINUTE MAN EVERY DAY THROUGH JULY 5th.

And, please, “Spread the Alarm” by forwarding this message to your family, friends and associates to maximize our impact.

Many, many thanks for your help and perseverance through July 5!
