Camden Playground...

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

I know our fair Goddess posted about this already, but I found another article and a whole slew of pictures I'd like to share. 

This is from the Courier Post in South Jersey:

CAMDEN — It's not every day that iconic rock stars frequent vacant lots near downtown Camden. But there he was -- Jon Bon Jovi -- surrounded by a horde of volunteers, local dignitaries and curious onlookers on a sunny Monday morning.

The New Jersey native has been to Camden previously to give concerts on the waterfront. On Monday, he made his first public appearance in the city not to sing, but to highlight community efforts to fix up blighted lots and an outdated playground.

Bon Jovi helped fund both projects this fall through a foundation he started to rebuild communities and assist those living in poverty.

"I'm proud to stand with those who have tried for so long to be heard," he told a crowd of about 230 people in Lanning Square. "Government can't do it alone, nonprofits can't do it alone, the residents can't do it alone. But the goal can be achieved. It's going to take commitment."

I am and always have been a Bon Jovi fan. This blog is just my obsession taken a step further, my imagination in high gear if you will. I love to read and decided to see what would happen when I took that love of the written word and ramped it up a bit.
