News from the Week

The week’s top story was news that the Fishtown Preservation Society has reached the $2.5 million goal it set to buy Fishtown and are on track to close the purchase this month. The next phase of the society’s plan for Fishtown will seek to raise an additional $2 million for efforts to maintain and preserve Fishtown’s historic structures, fishing boats and equipment and to create historical interpretation and education programs to reflect the history of commercial fishing on the Great Lakes. Other stories included news that a new cherry marketing plan will be unveiled next month in New York City.
