A Proud Moment for All

Harold Burnham being interviewed on stage in Washington, D.C. by Nick Spitzer of the radio show American Roots.
Great article  in the Washington Post about H.A. Burnham.  The crew is sailing back from D.C. and the Ardelle will be back in the creek in Essex for the winter. Quite a journey from the keel laying ceremony to the trip to D.C. Congratulations to all.
