On August 20, Joanne Rogers visited the Tribute to Children site.
Tim Inglis, President of the Colcom Foundation, accompanied her to the site where they met George Pastor from Astorino and Kurt Keller from FRANCO. At right are photos from the day.
Tribute to Children riverfront park is nearing completion and will soon be open to visitors. The project is managed by Astorino, the architectural firm responsible for design and construction. It will feature a walk around platform -- measuring approximately 96 feet by 59 feet -- and will encompass the old Manchester Bridge pier which will be reconstructed into a dramatic portal. The floor design will be patterned after the studio floor in Mister Rogers' Neighborhood known as the famed 'Neighborhood of Make-Believe.'
"We are thankful to the local tradesmen, authorities and to our team of architects for their efforts in creating a very special place that will be completed this summer," said Bill Isler, President of Family Communications, Inc. "The generosity of Colcom Foundation is making this gift to the region a reality," added Isler.
