Keystone United Forums Back Online

Filed under: Uncategorized — Keystone United @ 7:01 pm

KU_logo_smallThe new Keystone United Forum is up and online.  Unfortunately, our administrators were unable to transfer the data from the previous (outdated and unsupported) forum to the newest version.   All  information and membership, for better or worse, has been lost and everyone must re-register with Keystone United forums again.

A point in which we hope to address is that the forum, while it was informative,  served more social aspects.  We do not wish to restrict such behavior but encourage users to post worthwhile and intelligent posts and replies.

Also a obvious new feature is the blog format of the front page, which we will be using much more than the previous formats.  This feature will allow visitors to be informed without having to create an account for the forum.  So we encourage all our supporters and visitors to check out the main site as it will be updated daily.

June 20th State-wide Event

Filed under: Events, Keystone United News — Douglas Myers @ 2:56 pm

KU_logo_smallSaturday, June 20th was the first ever state-wide Keystone United event.   The event, which was organized with reaching local communities in mind, was a success.  While severe thunderstorms weaved their way through the state, it did not hamper the spirits, nor keep a large number of people from wanted to meet Keystone United and it’s members.  I do personally think that the weather did keep many people, especially with children, indoors.

In the cities of Wilkes-Barre, Philadelphia, Harrisburg and Pittsburgh members of Keystone United were joined by individuals interested in meeting for the first time or attended just to continue to show their loyal support.  While no particular location had any amazing or staggering numbers.  Combined numbers for the day, throughout the state, showed we had over 80 people in attendance; mostly newcomers.  Expected results were varied as this is the first event of it’s type.

Many people, particularly in these ever frugal financial times, were appreciative of the idea.  With that in mind, smaller state-wide events like this may not be that uncommon in the future.

Keystone United Interview

Keystone United Leif Ericsson Celebration 2007

Filed under: Events, Keystone United News, Media — Keystone United @ 7:46 pm

A video of Keystone United members and supporters gathered along the boat house row section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Several individuals spoke in honor of Leif Ericsson’s discovery of North America, discussing the success of early American settlements. The evening was later filled with excellent musical performances at a nearby park.

*For the record: The statue at which we gathered is not of Leif Ericsson
but that of Thorfinn Karlsefni, another successful Scandinavian explorer. Believed to be the first European ever born on American soil.
