Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Nat King Cole keeps singing this old song to me.
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9TmgqbebZ_M&NR=1 - A Blossom Fell - Nat King Cole
"A Blossom Fell" is a popular song.
It was written by Howard Barnes, Harold Cornelius, and Dominic John and published in 1954.
The best-known version was recorded by Nat King Cole. The recording was released by Capitol Records as catalog number 3095. The B-side was "If I May." The record first reached the Billboard magazine charts on April 27, 1955 and lasted 20 weeks on the chart, peaking at #2. (Note that in this era, Billboard combined data for both sides of two-sided hits, so the #2 status applies to the combination of "A Blossom Fell" and "If I May").

|TThe latest count for signatures from the
June 13 Primary Election Day Petition Drive is 2,073, and there are
still several people who I haven't received petitions from yet. The more
people we can reach with our petition the better. We will continue
gathering signatures during the summer and fall and make another major
effort on Election Day in November.
Please note the information in this message as well as on our website http://saveriverviewfarmpark.com/
The big opportunity for us during July is for each of us to attend at least one of the meetings listed below to express in both written form and verbally our views concerning the City Farm. The City Council will get the final word on this plan, but it's to our advantage if we can exert our influence at this stage and the greater the NUMBERS the better.

I have edited the portion of the video that I made from A. C. 's boat of the waterfront from the Lucas Creek area to the south end of Riverside Drive. By doubling the speed of most of the video, it is now less than 20 minutes in length. I also added music to the video.
The "Where Can We Go Ashore?" video is on the Riverview Farm Park playlist at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLqRorq6CPKT_GHxepEgbqm727_2asWEJ_
