Camp Constitution’s Third Quarter Report for 2021
We continue to have success promoting Camp Constitution in the Greater Alton, NH area where we have relocated. We had a float in Alton’s Old Home Day Parade where we distributed over 400 pocket copies of the U.S. Constitution, and in neighboring Gilford, NH, Jade Wood, a first-time Camp Constitution attendee, arranged to have our Camp Constitution Banner on a float while the children on the float were dressed in our Colonial-era outfits. We also became sponsors of two miles of highway on Rt 28 in Alton, held two video showing at the Community Church of Alton, had information tables at three local events, and hosted two well-attended barbecues at our home.
YouTube and Rumble Channels:
Thanks to Alex Newman and Professor Willie Soon, a number of Climate Realist news outlets published articles of the interview of Professor Soon by Mr. Newman. The articles linked both the interview and one of his classes leading to over 100,000 views on our Rumble page within a week.
