FDR Speaks STILLWATER Enjoy a real fireside chat with President Franklin D. Roosevelt as portrayed by actor Gary Stamm, at 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 22 at the Battlefield Visitor center at S a r a t o g a N a t i o n a l Historical Park. Guests will hear FDR talk about the park’s 75th anniversary, the role he had in its establishment, and his administration’s work to expand the national park system. “Of all the presidential visitors (to Saratoga National Park),” said Park Ranger Joe Craig, “none played such a critical role in the preservation of Saratoga National Historical Park as Franklin Roosevelt. He was a man fascinated by history, and recognized that historic sites were as worthy of preservation as the many natural wonders that make up the national parks system.” Wisconsin resident Gary Stamm brings vast experience in performances on stage, radio and television. His credits include singing with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, voice talent for Hanna-Barbera Productions, and his one-man performances as FDR. For more information, call the Visitor Center at 518-6649821 ext. 1777 or visit www.nps. gov/sara.
