A meeting is scheduled for Friends of The RKO Keith’s Flushing:

Saturday March 7th, 2009
12:00 noon – 2:00 pm
St John Vianney Parish Hall
140-10 34th Ave, Flushing –
Parking Lot on Corner of 35th Avenue and Union Street

There is a $100 donation which I am paying (gladly) – if anyone would like to chip in, feel free. No pressure to do so.

A few things we hope to cover during the meeting:

1- Status of the theater and a brief history of where it is today
2- History of The Committee to Save The RKO Keith’s Flushing, Inc.
3- Purpose of the committee, “friends of The RKO Keith’s"
4- Formulate game plan for future endeavors to save the Keith’s: Fundraising, Marketing. Non-profit status, Community Awareness, Preservation Group awareness &
Involvement, Media awareness and involvement.
5- Formation of sub-committees to carry out our mission of saving the RKO Keith’s.

I hope that we can have at least 100 supporters there. Please forward this to everyone you know. I realize many are involved other groups – churches, associations, non-profits, etc. – I would ask you to spread this information to those groups as well if for no other reason than to make them aware.

I am meeting the morning before with some of the key people involved from the beginning to give me a better sense of what we’re up against. This is by far, no small task. But I believe it is not impossible.
