Houston... We have a problem.
We need a new JFK Statue to replace the bronze original damaged by time and the elements. Its been 10 plus years and the window is fast closing.
We call upon our generation of 70s/80s Islanders to jointly support a Guam based group led by 60s alumni in raising funds. We need at least 25K for a new statue and 25K for base/foundation reconstruction. Government is an unlikely option.
Thanks in part to social media, alumni have been rediscovered in the mainland. Together, we can make this a reality in time for our alma mater 60th graduating class in 2020 during a special unveiling ceremony, concurrent with a homecoming reunion.
Let's help restore this symbol of our lslander Legacy for the benefit of future generations. It's our calling. Let's do it.
Proceeds support travel and overhead, lower ticket prices and allow us to donate to our targeted charity - Restoration of JFK Statue in time for our Alma Mater 60th anniversary in 2020.
