John Glenn Astronomy Park Fundraising Tops Million Dollar Mark; Project Garners National Attention
The Friends Of The Hocking Hills State Park are very pleased to announce that fundraising efforts for the John Glenn Astronomy Park project have realized over $1 million in donations being received. As a result, we have now reached over 60% of our goal for this $1.6 million project, and construction is scheduled to begin on the park this Spring.
A big reason for the fundraising success of this project is that it is currently gaining attention throughout North America in the wake of the recent passing of Senator John Glenn, the great American hero and space exploration pioneer.
