Community supports Marco Polo efforts.

   This is the text of a letter that was sent to Barry Ogden, chairman of the Marco Polo II Project Committee. It is reproduced here with the writer's permission.
   On behalf of the board and staff of Enterprise Saint John I want to congratulate you on the success of your efforts with respect to the Marco Polo II Project and, more particularly, the unveiling of the Marco Polo postage stamp.
    As I believe you and your committee are aware, the Greater Saint John community strongly support your efforts. Your work, and the success of the project, is of historic and cultural significance not only to Greater Saint John, but to New Brunswick and Canada.
   More particularly, recognizing this magnificent ship by a stamp, and by the construction of a replica in Saint John will serve not only as a wonderful event for our communities, but it will also result in a significant tourism attraction for Greater Saint John. Your efforts contribute significantly to Enterprise Saint John's promotion of regional co-operation in tourism.
   Thank you for your continued efforts from the communities of Greater Saint John.

David G. Barry
Chairperson,
Enterprise Saint John,
