This Wednesday, September 28, citizens from all parts of Northern New England who have been expressing increased interest in the Pink House will be gathering for the first of what is to become monthly meetings.
It will start at 7 PM at PITA Hall on Plum Island, within sight of the iconic Pink House whose planned demise has raised the passion of enough people to successfully postpone the intended. Thanks to the bi-partisan efforts of state and federal officials and various stakeholders stepping up to join Support The Pink House in the cause, the Pink House will now stand for another year, thanks to the cooperation of the owners, US Fish and Wildlife/Parker River Wildlife Refuge.
The meeting will begin with an informational presentation to tell the compelling story, which is expected to include a few words from Senators Tarr and Ives, culminating in the opportunity for all interested in pitching in to to sign on to the effort. And they are needed, as the challenges are not over.
It has taken a handful of people on the Support the Pink House Steering Committee a year to arrive at this turning point. Now a new year to work on solutions lies ahead. Momentum, interest and options continue to build on a daily basis. As a result, the group will go forward to meet each month, expanding outreach and continuing their research and exploration of proposals to shepherd The Pink House into a scenario that will keep the her in the community in perpetuity.
An Art Show and Auction is also in the works, set for November 17th at PITA Hall.
