Radio City Music Hall opens

“At the height of the Great Depression, thousands turn out for the opening of Radio City Music Hall, a magnificent Art Deco theater in New York City. Radio City Music Hall was designed as a palace for the people, a place of beauty where ordinary people could see high-quality entertainment. Since its 1932 opening, more than 300 million people have gone to Radio City to enjoy movies, stage shows, concerts and special events. Radio City Music Hall was the brainchild of the billionaire John D. Rockefeller, Jr., who decided to make the theater the cornerstone of the Rockefeller Complex he was building in a formerly derelict neighborhood in midtown Manhattan. The theater was built in partnership with the Radio Corporation of America (RCA) and designed by Donald Deskey. The result was an Art Deco masterpiece of elegance and grace constructed out of a diverse variety of materials, including aluminum, gold foil, marble, permatex, glass, and cork. Geometric ornamentation is found throughout the theater, as is Deskey’s central theme of the “Progress of Man.”

Deputy Eilers had the opportunity to lead the “Pajama Express” in Waterville. Families were invited to meet at the Waterville Public Library for cocoa, characters, and fun. They then lined up in their vehicles for a group “train” drive around the Village of Waterville to view holiday lights.
Thank YOU ALL!!!
We missed a shot of the WPL crew of staff and volunteers in all this, but they made magic behind the scenes too. We had some extra volunteering by some magical souls too!
We’ll see you at the Winter Solstice 2023 for another Pajama Express! Way to light the night community!
