Last August, I reported that "The Carousel Under the Clock"; Hull,
Massachusetts, was in danger of being sold off piece by piece!
I just received a newsletter from the "Friends of the Paragon Carousel",
a Boston-based nonprofit organization which formed specifically to keep
the Carousel on the beach at Nantasket where it belongs!!
Friends of the Paragon Carousel have raised over $170,000.00 thus far. They
need another $150,000.00 by Jan 30, 1996 to secure bank financing for the
$1.1 million property loan they're looking to obtain to purchase and operate
A small donation will get you on their mailing list. They also have
certificates, buttons, shirts, etc. available for donations.
This is not a shameless solicitation for funds -- but THOSE WHO ARE INTERESTED
can contact this organization at the following address:
Friends of the Paragon Carousel
P.O. Box 100
Hull, MA 02045
