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 two well-attended barbecues at our home.

Thanks to Alex Newman and Professor Willie Soon, a number of Climate Realist news outlets did 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 within a week.

A number of foreign news outlets carried the story as well. As mentioned above, dozens of ‘Climate Realists” news outlets and bloggers ran a story about Professor Will Soon’s interview with Alex Newman.
