Well, lots to catch up on, ( dont't know what's up with the site, and why I can't work the font and size )
but let's get crackin' the past summer has been verey busy with the completion of the main room and sunset kitchen
to hight so we can hopefuly place the rafters and put the A-frame on the main house which will help greatly
in reducing water in the basement, and furthe damage to the oak planked floor in the main room,
this past winter most if the Palace was covered with a tarp keeping everything dry for the most part, allowing use
ofthe kitchen and main room, Fred Tolley has begun the ramps that will lead up and around the radio tower, these
ramps also serve as the roof of the ramps leading up to the sunset kichen and down to the Devil's den, etc. these
were also this past hurricane covered over, and with sand bags blocking the run off down the basement ramp, greatly
reduced the flooding in the basement ( you can check my FB page for images of Sandy vrs the Palace) fun stuff being
out there for the show!
we also this past season aquired a new company cat, goes by the name of "Boone" very cool, and I'm greatful
for the company, and during the late sring and early fall with the skills of Joni Jardel and Sam Campbell we now have a
beautiful garden along the walk way down to the ticketbooth, as well as other gardens on the Palace grounds.
this past October the Levoy theater hosted a fund raiser for the Palace project, though only drawing a small crowd of
well wishers, it still gave several folk as well as myself a chance to use our talents on stage, a really cool feeling to do
so, and not to be missed ( please check the Palace FB page for details) our seoned fundraiser coming up Nov. 15th.
hosted by the N.J Deviler news paper, comedy and music, aswell as open mic, if need be you can reach me for details
we have been having a lot of folk coming to the PoD to use it as a set or back drop for images and film, this has been
very cool, we simply ask for nothing to racy, and a small donation of 25 dollars, proceeds going for the purchase of
materials for the project, thanks in advance and come on out and do your thing!,
Our 4th annual Halloween walk through was a wonderful thre nights of fun and scaryness, with the
completion of the first story of the Palace as a terriffic back drop and the help of many awesome volunteers,
and Tony Campbell for his skills once more as the Palace's DJ providing a great mix of fun and spooky music.
I know I've probabley missed a few cool things here and there, but 'm going to keep up with more
well, once more before signing off, thanks again to the N.J youth corps lead by Steve Medio, for coming out
and giving us a hand when they could, and all the other wonderful folk that have come and gone with the wonder and
inspiration that we hope the Palace brings to one and all,
Thankyou all, sincerely, Jeffrey Tirante
