We’re fast approaching our last two days of this project and we have a lot to show for it. At the end of ten weeks we have created an online book with 31 different sections and six videos that detail the resources and culture in Allentown. This book would not have been possible without the guidance and advice that we received from professionals in both Allentown and Tubingen. Tomorrow we plan to personally thank these people with the unveiling of our website and a celebratory event however there are many of you who will be unable to make it. So to those of you reading this who will not be there tomorrow we would like to say thank you. Thank you for your time and your thoughtfulness. Thank you for bearing with us as we fumbled with poor Wi-Fi and other unforeseen issues. And thank you for giving your time to the community and for working to make Allentown a better place. We know that you don’t hear it nearly enough but you are truly a gift to this city and you are making it a better place.
In every meeting we were asked if this project is going to be maintained or if it is going to fizzle out on July 22nd when our internship is over. We promise that this project will not fizzle out but instead it will grow and expand. I am the President of a club recognized by the Department of State called No Lost Generation and Rebecca is a part of the executive board for this club. Our club plans to take over this project and ensure that it is well maintained and that it expands to other cities within the Lehigh Valley. We look forward to keeping in contact with you and please reach out to us if you need anything. We are happy to give you brochures, postcards and flyers advertising our website and we would love to hear any feedback that you may have.
