I have donated my fire engine and hearseto the Larz Anderson Auto Museum. The museum picked up both vehicles. They wrote:
Later they wrote:Both seem very interesting and obviously have an interesting history.
The hearse has been sold to a private collector. The sales income is a gift to the museum.We are delighted to have the donation. I would actually like to bring both the fire truck and the hearse here to the museum so that we can show them off for a while. We can do this as early as next week.
What makes this exciting is that the vehicles have the signs for the cause still on them. For instance, on the hearse:
Familes Are SufferingI have also supplied them with the Lawyers Weekly article about the Million Dads March (June 2003) and the reason we were in Washington, D.C., that is, to fight the federal bonuses to the States. I suspect that the article -- explaining the history -- will also be on display.
So we have some "free" advertising for the cause.
Maybe the media will pick up on the display of the engine and the hearse.
For those interested in seeing antique autos on display, the Larz Anderson Auto Museum is located at 15 Newton Street, Brookline, MA.02445. Phone: 617-522-6547. See http://www.mot.org for directions and http://www.larz.anderson.org. You can also read about the museum on Wikipedia.
Please spread this announcement far and wide. We want to encourage visits to the museum, a fascinating landmark in the MetroBoston area. For wintertime visitors, the museum maintains an ice rink, too!
