As we have posted on our Facebook page and our website, we are working behind the scenes to develop an alternative berthing location and plan that is solid enough to return CV-67 to donation status.
Once that plan is developed we will have a specific proposal to promote, and that’s when we hope to coordinate fundraising efforts, emails, letters and petitions.
We are concerned that a premature petition would not have enough gravity, because it would not be asking for something specific. Asking the Navy to “save JFK” without a viable plan to do so will not have the desired effect.
Please give us time to solidify a plan that will allow us to move forward from a position of strength. (I would hope to announce next steps in as few as 30 days.)

ENGINEERING FUND PROGRESS
We are very grateful to the 61 people who have contributed $3,580 so far to the fund we established to develop that alternative berthing plan – thank you!
We also know that there are far more than 61 people who have a sincere interest in seeing this project through.
The expressions of support and encouragement that you have posted on Facebook and on our website are gratifying. However, the reality is that those good wishes and “attaboys” will not be enough by themselves to get the project through this challenging time. If you haven’t already, please do consider a tangible contribution—just click on this link to donate.
