As the year’s end approaches, it is an appropriate time to reflect on the past. We are fortunate at the Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Heritage Area to have so many wonderful stakeholders: donors, volunteers, community partners, and the media.
To recap 2014, we thought it would be good to share with you the work of our various programs and activities through the lens of the media. We appreciate the willingness of the writers, reporters, and photographers who helped spread the word of our various work. As a result, we have picked the Top 12 stories that best represent our diverse programs.
