Houston... We have a problem.
We need a new JFK Statue to replace the bronze original damaged by time and the elements.
We call upon our generation of 70s/80s Islanders to jointly support a Guam based group led by 60s alumni in raising funds. Government is an unlikely option.
With our growth, we are positioned to support this cause through merchandising, auction of donated items and for the first time, offering donor and sponsor opportunities to individuals and businesses.
Together, we can make this a reality in time for our alma mater 60th graduating class in 2020.
Let's help restore this symbol of our lslander Legacy for the benefit of future generations to come. It's our calling. Let's do it.
