Earth Shattering Event
City officals, Aquarium board members, volunteers and staff were all on hand for Thursday's "Earth Shattering Event" - the official kick off of the renovation. After hearing from the Aquarium's Director, our "super supportive" Mayor, Board President and State Delegate Bob Tata a wrecking ball, in the shape of the planet, was launched into one of the original gallery walls taking out a good size chunk and beginning the demolition process. Chuck Arthur (W.M. Jordan) commented afterwards "keep going... it's less work for us!"
