“The Fort Adams Trust has always been proud of holding a variety of community focused events throughout the year with a special focus on the surrounding area as the seasons’ progress from summer tourism to more local fall year-end events.  We are especially pleased this fall to have a dynamic array of fort produced and events sponsored by our community partners that appeal to aficionados, as well as more general family fun,” offered Chris Zeeman, president of the Fort Adams Trust.  “The events unto themselves are all great, but when you couple that with the setting of Fort Adams; it makes them each a-can’t-miss opportunity for weekend fun,” he further added.
