Saving Fort Ross
To Liz Burko - Russian River District Superintendent! We, the undersigned, are writing to urge you to keep Fort Ross open to the public. Multiple sources have reported that the Fort Ross State Historic Park is in danger of being closed due to state budget cuts. We urge you to spare Fort Ross from such misfortune. This old, enchanted place is an important cultural landmark in Russian-American relations. It is very dear not only to Russians living in America, but also to all people who appreciate California's rich and diverse past, which became the solid foundation and welcoming ground for many people who came to this wonderful state over the past several decades. Please, keep Fort Ross open and let the legacy of the past teach us tolerance, understanding and appreciation for California's rich history! We thank you in advance for your commitment to preserving California's Fort Ross"! Sincerely, Those who love Fort Ross (Russians, Americans, Russian-Americans and others committed to preserving Fort Ross).
