NEWSLETTER OF THE TWENTIETH LEGION
Vol. XIX, no. x, October 2009
Well, it isn't *quite* that season yet, even if Home
Depot has already decked its halls (no joke!), but it's not too late to
start penciling things on your calendar. The Bethlehem Walk at
Parkwood Baptist Church in Annandale will be on December 12-13, and
they are wondering who will participate. Please contact Sam
Roberts as soon as possible if you want to do that one, samrobertsiii
AT cox DOT net. "We will finalize the times but best that your
soldiers show up at 3 p.m. Saturday night and Sunday as well. We have
free childcare and dinner for both the kids being cared for and adults
working the event." Sounds like a good deal!
I don't have dates for the Walk Through Bethlehem at
the Seventh Day Adventist HQ yet, but it's usually the first and second
weekends in December, with a couple weeknights between.
The Legion will not be attending the Meadow Highland
Games and Celtic Festival (formerly the Richmond Highland Games and
Celtic Festival) this year. Maybe next year!
MORE DISTANT EVENTS

[Quintus notes: Throwing this in for general amusement. Don't
know if they really mean "centurion" or just "legionary", but if you
are up for a decidedly non-educational TV gig, call them!]
We are looking for physically fit experts for an on air, in studio
expert and for a segment about the Roman Centurion soldier. The
dates of availability are 11/11-11/13/09. The role is important
and we are looking to get these guys in studio or on tape.
We are shooting this SPIKE TV segment in November and are looking for
this individual to be able to explain the weapons of this formidable
warrior to the television masses.
Please give us a call I have attached some literature along with a link
explaining the show itself.
We'd like to thank you in advance for any assistance you may give us
now or either in the future.
