We would like everyone to know that we will be donating a portion of the funds and also setting up a donation box for The Greatest Generations Foundation. This foundation sends veterans to the areas they once fought in so many are going for the last time for WWII. It's only right to give something back to those who served.
Please visit their website at  ( and hopefully everyone will be able to help just a little.

This will be my first visit to Newville and I am VERY excited to be attending the event!  I've heard wonderful things about the site.

I'm curious, what vendors will be attending?  I would like to pick up a few things to flesh out my Soviet impression, as well as begini work on my Luftwaffe Felddivision 'secondary' impression.
