Some time ago, Mark Freeman put a lot of time and effort into setting up our website. He did an excellent job and deserves our gratitude. Since Mr. Freeman is no longer in our area, the website has been neglected for some time. We are also grateful that Lea Tesarova has stepped forward and volunteered to update the website. We urge you to have a look at it: www.legacymuseum.org.
