EISENHOWER MEMORIAL COMMISSION COMMENTS ON

HOUSE INTERIOR APPROPRIATIONS DRAFT BILL

AS RELEASED ON JULY 8, 2014

 

 

WASHINGTON, JULY 8, 2014

 

In November, 2012, the Eisenhower Middle School community -- students, teachers and parents -- held a kickoff event for the fundraising drive entitled, “Past, Present and Future.”  With the School’s history in mind, the kickoff was held on the 50th anniversary of the school’s dedication when it opened in 1962.  Since then, members of the school community participated in numerous fundraising activities.

Nearly a thousand visitors had their photos taken alongside a life-size likeness of Ike, and 10,000 of those visitors took home a very special memento of their visit to Ike’s booth – campaign buttons and magnets proclaiming “I Still Like Ike.” Many went home and “liked” Ike’s memorial on Facebook, and hundreds of the photos taken with Ike are now showcased on the Facebook page.
