George Rogers Clark NHP has published a newsletter to volunteers, park friends, and neighbors since January 1996.
The name for the newsletter comes from an article in 1997 that focused on the expense reports of Father Pierre Gibault and Dr. Jean Baptiste Laffont, two men that were sent to Vincennes to secure the loyalty of the French inhabitants. In these reports was noted a new flag (the French word, pavillion, pronounced - pa-vee-on) was used to bring news to the people of Vincennes and this became the new name for the newsletter.
The newsletter is published at least four times a year and mailed to volunteers, park friends, and neighbors. However, we wanted to include all visitors to the park website. The newsletter contains park news, research by park staff, upcoming events, and much more. The current edition of the newsletter will be made available here, but newsletters going back to last year will be made available in the archive on the website, as well. All the editions of the newsletter going back to the very first in 1996 are available in the park library.
