Calendar item on Wilderness group was in error

It’s been brought to my attention that the annual meeting of Friends of the Wilderness Battlefield, to be held Saturday at Lake of the Woods (with an accompanying history talk and walk), is open to FoWB members only.

A History Calendar item in Tuesday’s Town & County section did not make this clear. I regret the mistake.

This week’s calendar is online here:

If you’re interested in joining the local all-volunteer group, which operates and is restoring historic Ellwood Manor off State Route 20 near Wilderness Corner, you may do via its website, Click on “Join FoWB.”

For more information or to RSVP for the members-only meeting, e-mail the group’s president, Zann Nelson, at, or call (540) 547-2395.
