    Latest Update-

    The Atlantic City Experience Exhibit at the Boardwalk Hall is almost ready to open. Hopefully within the next few months. Since the original AC Museum was wiped out in one of the storms a few years ago, they were unable to fund a separate location so decided to create a permanent exhibit inside of the Boardwalk Hall. There will be several showcase including one for the 500 Club and one for the Working Class.

    We sent our original out to be copied and sized for the exhibit, and just last week returned the consent form for use.

    In a few short months, Uncle Don will be on display doing Jane Mansfield's Hair/Wig for the world to see. (the pic is on the last page at the bottom)

    Once the Hall is fully open, we will plan a trip to see it. We also plan to take some pics of the display and specifically out photo, and send it to Mariska to let her know what we have done with the pics.

    I guess my next update will be when the Hall is fully open and the exhibit is complete. Then we wait for Scott to complete the writing of his movie about the 500 Club and hopefully still including a character portraying Uncle Don.

    Cheers

    Wow Brian. Maybe you can have those pics preserved and other stuff to the museum? Have the museum buy those antiques.

    Just got the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony VIP invite. It is July 23rd, my wife's birthday.

    What a great present for her.

    The Atlantic City Experience

    Just opened yesterday is a $10.4 million dollar project at Atlantic City Boardwalk Hall. As the original museum was wiped out from Sandy, the Library has been storing and archiving what survived. This display should remain for many years and a showcase will get refreshed each year. That means our pic will not be here forever, but if they do get funding for a real B&M location, they will display everything they have.

    The event started with a gathering and greeting of many involved as well as other dignitaries and special VIPs. The speeches started with the Mayor and ended with Vicki Gold Levi, who is the force behind this whole exhibit. We met a former Miss America as well as 2 other past contestants. We met other people in some of the pics, or their surviving family. After they cut the ribbon for all to view, they had a nice lunch upstairs for the VIP crowd. It was a nice lunch and the world's largest Pipe Organ was being played the whole time. Magnificent!

    This was a terrific way to spend my wife's Birthday.

    Right next to the display case with our pic of Uncle Don working on Jayne Mansfield is a interactive kiosk with tons of pics. One of the pics is of Jayne putting her feet in the cement in the Walk of Fame at the 500 Club the night that our pic was taken.

    Anyone that will spend any time in AC should make this a stop to see.

    The News article and pics are here. My wife and I are in several, but sadly from the back in most. (right in the middle of the 1st pic in the article)
