Getting our booth ready. TSC Vice President Gene Genova (right), Secretary Chris Wesselborg (left), and Treasurer Mary Daum (not shown) received lots of positive response from visitors young and old.

On a pleasant, sunny day, representatives from TSC informed the local public about the efforts toward acquisition of Wardenclyffe at Wading River’s Annual Duck Pond Day celebration. We spoke to many area residents. It was reassuring to hear that many knew about the efforts to save the laboratory, and wanted an update on its status. And we were pleased to find that interest has continued to grow since last year.

Most visitors to our booth were now familiar with the laboratory site and are anxious to see it saved. Many young children knew who Tesla was and are interested in learning more about his science. And when shown pictures from the recent site visit, several people reacted with concern about the ongoing deterioration inside the historic laboratory building.

The new, sturdy awning made it possible to bring several poster boards to this open-air venue, as well as a copy of an historic map of the Rocky Point/Shoreham area. Various visitors expressed not only an interest in the future of the site but also in what this part of Long Island had looked like a hundred years ago.
