Commemorative Reception -- 10th Anniversary of Midnight Meigs Raid
Sunday, March 31, 2013
The reception is being hosted by Rachel Goodstein, past
president of Friends of Meigs Field.
"There will be a gathering to mark the 10th anniversary of the night Meigs Field was illegally destroyed and democracy died in Chicago. (Note: This event is happening on the actual anniversary date of the notorious historic event, which this year falls on Easter.)
"If events had gone as we had hoped we would be celebrating the tenth anniversary of the decision to build the Bessie Coleman Skypark and Chicago Air Museum. And perhaps Chicago would have received one of NASA's retired shuttles to display on Meigs Field.
"This year the anniversary date falls during the week of Passover, a holiday commemorating freedom, and on Easter, a holiday observing resurrection.
"The commemoration event is at Maggiano's and is designed so that people can drop by as their schedules might permit on the holiday.
"Please feel free to bring guests--Meigs supporters/fans, good government advocates, and family."
