From all of us here at Purple Line NOW to all our supporters - we wish you a very Happy Holiday and a bright and happy New Year! The turn of the calendar brings us closer to the day when we will all take our first ride on the Purple Line!
Before heading off for your holiday break, please take a moment to read our reminders below.
1) If you haven't already done so, make sure you have signed up to attend our next Envisioning the Purple Line Forum on January 10, 2019, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at City Hall in College Park. We are pleased to report that seats are filling and we are looking forward to a great crowd for our terrific panel that evening. Attendance, as always, is free and open to the public and media, but your seat must be reserved in advance. Seating is limited to the first 100 folks with reservations.
Speakers for this forum will include College Park Mayor Patrick Wojahn, Purple Line Transit Partners CEO Fred Craig, Assistant Deputy Chief Administrative Officer for Prince George's County Economic Development & Public Infrastructure Bradley Frome, Associate Vice President, Facilities Management, for University of Maryland University College George Trujillo, and Anna McLaughlin, Assistant Director of Sustainability at the University of Maryland’s Department of Transportation. As you can see, this is going to be a very informative evening for the community and we hope you will join us!
Media is invited and inquiries can be made to Christine Scott,[email protected].
2) As the year comes to a close, we hope you will include us in your annual giving. We exist only on donations from individuals and businesses who care about the Purple Line - we don't have corporate underwriters and we are not funded by any government entity. Because of your generosity, we are able to bring you information-packed newsletters, educational and informative programs, and provide a conduit for community issues regarding the project to the folks who can help solve them. We do a lot on a very skinny budget and volunteer elbow grease! If you've benefited by our services or enjoy the information we bring to you, we hope you will consider becoming a sponsor of our programs. We appreciate all levels of sponsorship - so do consider joining your neighbors and friends who proudly support Purple Line NOW. Your name will appear at all events and on all promotional materials for a year following your donation. The benefits of sponsorship are listed on our website and donating is easy - just follow this link: I'd like to become a sponsor!
Thank you for helping to make this year one of progress for this outstanding project. We are grateful for you and all you do for the communities in which we live and work.
Christine Scott, Executive Director
