NCMLS - citizens meeting

Commenter Client 56 left this note about tonight's meeting between Museum of Life and Science staff and concerned citizens of Northgate Park and Durham regarding how to deal with the vandalized dinosaur:
The neighborhood association meeting went very well. We had Dusty Wescott, son of Bronty's creator, with some history and great pictures, and Julie Rigby, VP External Relations at the Museum, discussing some options and asking for comments. Also present, Joe Colopy, CEO of Bronto Software, whose company has pledged money toward the restoration. We split into groups to talk about what it means to us, what we want to happen, and how funds could be raised. I'll leave the details for others to fill in, but there's interest and enthusiasm -- stay tuned!

Can't wait to hear what comes from this.



  • For the sake of accuracy I wanted to clarify....the Bronto Community meeting held June 11th 2009 was hosted by the Northgate Park Neighborhood Association (NPNA). As chair of the Save the Bronto Committee and current VP of the NPNA, I, together with Page McCullough and Mike Shiflett, planned and facilitated the meeting. Dusty Westcott, son of Bronto's builder, and Julie Rigby, VP of External Relations at the Museum of Life and Science, were invited to participate. About 35 Durham residents attended the meeting and expressed great passion about saving the beloved Bronto. Fund raising ideas and memories of the Bronto's past were also shared. For more information or to contribute to the fund, contact Nancy Rizzo, 919 308 4306
