Dedicated to the Historic Preservation of the Site of the 1969 Woodstock Festival
THE WOODSTOCK SITE
Hurd & West Shore Rds
|Hello to all who respect historic
landmarks. Especially those that represent peace and music:
Remember the 1969 Woodstock Festival in Upstate New York? That wonderful sloping hill on Yasgur's Farm will soon fall prey to construction machinery and commercialism. WITHIN DAYS, THE 1969 WOODSTOCK SITE MAY HAVE PLANS APPROVED THAT WILL ALTER THIS WONDERFUL ICON FOREVER.
One of your friends has taken it upon himself/herself to help this global movement to inform the world of this atrocity. We seldom take up others' time with e-mails but give us a minute or so. This is truly important. Politics and the Monied Elite in upstate New York are mounting their next assault on the Woodstock Festival Site. This time the goal is to transform a major portion of the property into what will amount to a commercial shopping complex. The term "Music/Performing Arts Center" is used to add legitimacy to the planned changes. Folks who know Alan Gerry (property owner) and the political structure in Bethel New York, Sullivan County aren't buying this latest deception. Literally thousands of people journey to Bethel, New York each year to visit the Festival Site and Monument. An organized group (the Woodstock Preservation Alliance) needs your help to stop these plans.
Here's a link to the web site www.thewoodstockspirit.org Take a moment and stop by. In depth information is available and a Petition that you can sign On-Line. We are also happy to respond to your e-mails. Nobody's asking for time or money... Just your support. If Woodstock has Importance to you, please do more than just reading this e-mail. Stop by the website shown above.
If you agree with our mission, please sign the petition and send this email to as many friends as possible. If every person who receives this email could send it to 10 people or more immediately, we could blanket the world within a few days. There are literally days left before the final fate of this wonderful icon to a generation is desecrated forever. THE WOODSTOCK SITE BELONGS TO YOU. ONLY YOU CAN STOP IT FROM BEING TAKEN AWAY.
