For all those who have spoken about how sad it is that the Golden West burned and the El Rey and Launchpad have suffered damage, a chance to get in and do something about it, for the El Rey at least.
I received the following email from the City, specifically the Mayor's office, today.
Dear community volunteer:
The following volunteer opportunity might be of interest to you. Please share this list with your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, youth group, service club, etc.
If interested, please contact Pastor Paul Herzog at (505)301-7464.
El Rey Theatre, 620 Central S.W. The El Rey Theatre was affected by a fire last week. Volunteers are needed to help with clean-up so the theatre can resume operation. As many of you know the El Rey Theatre is on the Historical Register and we can help as a community to bring it back into operation.
Help needed on Saturday, March 8, beginning at 9:00 a.m. Clean-up will continue next week, beginning Monday, March 10, noon to 8:00 p.m., each day. Volunteers needed to help clean a thin layer of soot on walls, ceiling and carpet.
To sign up, please contact: Pastor Paul Herzog, 505-301-7464.
Who says the Mayor doesn't care? Well, care enough to have one of his folks send out notifications anyway. :) But what about the Launchpad I wonder?
Anyhow, if you care too, go chip in. Or at the very least, post this info elsewhere, music groups, wherever, and get the word out.
