Hello- We are back at work for the World's Fair Anniversary season. Much going on since the ring in of the New Year and we have made more progress.
Queens Borough President Melinda Katz has vowed not to tear down the pavilion! John and Mitch attended a press conference at the Queens Theatre where she declared her support in saving the structure. We also met some other officials at an anniversary meeting which led to an invitation to join the NYSP Task Force that Melinda set up. The first Task Force meeting certainly showed great support for the project.
We would like to tell those who may not yet know, that the New York State Pavilion Paint Project Crew along with NYC Parks, will be hosting an Open Gate Event at the pavilion on anniversary day, April 22, 2014. Fifty years to the day after the fair originally began it's two year run. Details can be found at http://nyspproject.org
and also look for the link to the facebook event! We hope to see you there. More details and special guests will be forthcoming.
Also, we have prepared another progress report for March 2014: http://nyspproject.com/progress_report_for_the_new_yorkJ.htm
We have exceeded goal here at gofundme but find we have much more to do so please continue to spread the word!
Thanks again to everyone for helping keep the project successful!
