C&O Canal Poster

Click on the picture to enlarge it.


Original artwork commissioned by the C&O Canal Association made its
debut earlier this month in Cumberland. Park officials unveiled the painting by internationally  known
artist Mark Stutzman at the annual Heritage Days Festival June 11. The image pays tribute to the rich history, nature, and wildlife of the C&O Canal to celebrate the National Park Service Centennial.
Association member Francis “Champ” Zumbrun came up with the idea for the project after working with Mark on a similar effort in honor of the Casselman River Bridge bicentennial. Champ worked with Barbara Sheridan, then president of the association.
You can buy an 18" x 24" poster version of the artwork at the association's on-line store, The price is $11. A postcard version is also available for $2.
The original painting is currently on display at the Cumberland Visitor Center, where it will remain through mid-August. The painting will then move to the Williamsport Visitor Center where it will be on exhibit for Williamsport Days festival in late August. Beginning with the Park After Dark event September 17, the painting will be displayed at Great Falls Tavern

Ali Is Dead At 74
Click on  the link above to read what I wrote about Ali and Frazier after Joe Frazier died in 2011.
They came to The Shoreham Hotel when I worked there in 1976.
The World Boxing Association held a big event then with every living heavy weight champion except George Foreman. Joe Louis was there. Jack Dempsey was there. And all the rest. Howard Cosell was the M.C. Over 1000 people came to see these champions. It was a big deal.
The next day I got Ali's autograph. You can see it by clicking on the link above.

Click on the pictures below to enlarge them.

The above picture is from the event. It was taken by Milton Williams on August 27, 1976 in the Regency Ballroom of The Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C.

 Below are two pictures from the event. They are in the Regency ballroom and are of Ken Norton.
I am looking on in both pictures.
And the picture below is of Ali and Frazier lined up with the others waiting to go in the Regency ballroom in 1976.
