The King of Pot Tribute Bench Fundraiser
Our goal is to raise the $5,000 and have the bench dedicated in the Fall of 2014 shortly before the next Boston Freedom Rally.
I received an email today from the Boston Parks Department informing me that the plaque has already been installed. I have attached a picture that they provided.
The bench is located in an area called the "Liberty Mall", which is across the street from the State House at the bottom of the stairway that leads to the Boston Common.
Once again, Thank You for your support! Without each and every one of you this tribute to Michael (KOP) would not have been possible.
I have been working with the City of Boston Parks Department for the past several weeks trying to get agreement on the location of the Tribute Bench for Michael. Unfortunately I was not able to get a Bench on Mt. Malta or even near there. The bench that the City Parks Department has agreed on is near the State House in an area called the "Liberty Mall". And since our cause is all about Liberty, I think it's a perfect location for a Tribute Bench dedicated to a man who fought tirelessly for Cannabis Freedom and Liberty.
I have attached a couple of pictures of the bench and the area it's located in. The plaque has been ordered and will take several weeks to be produced. When I have a date for the installation I will post another update.
Once again, Thank You to everyone who donated their time and money to make the idea of dedicating a Tribute Bench to Michael become reality!!
I am overwhelmed by the generosity of the Cannabis Community, friends and family who opened their hearts and their wallets to fund this Tribute to Michael. Because of that outpouring of support we raised the $5,000 in less than 30 days!
The application for the plaque has been submitted to the City of Boston and I will send out an update once I know when it will be installed.
But rest assured we will have another celebration on Mt. Malta on the day the plaque is installed. The memorial for Michael L. Malta will be in place for 15 years. And I truly believe it will become a gathering point for people to come together and celebrate, remember and hopefully be inspired by his dedication to Cannabis Freedom!!!
Long live The King of Pot!!!
