  1. About 50 supporters/friends there to witness this ceremony today. Spoke with neighbor Sue and husband Murray who are supportive of preserving this historic setting, opened in 1932. We walked the park today and enjoyed the miniatures of this fantasy world. If you haven’t been, do plan a visit some time.
