The Brits are Here


Here we see Lois Humphreys (Mayor of Abingdon, Virginia) watching as Pat Lonergan ( Mayor of Abingdon, England) logs onto the newly launched free internet with his PDA. Can I thank the Bristol Herald Courier for the pictures. Pat is quoted as telling that newspaper "We too have a Bristol."

46 visitors from Abingdon, England have gone across to celebrate the 230th Anniversary of Abingdon, Virginia. Here they can be seen arriving. Three town councillors, including Pat, are among them. There is also a Freeman.
