Iraq War Monument Cape Coral, FL.
« on: July 13, 2012, 10:19:58 PM »
I still have not put this here yet.  I'm actually on a committee for the FIRST Iraq War Monument (hopefully) in the U.S.  I was contacted by the Mayor of Cape Coral and I'm on the Board. 

If we set up a PayPal account to raise funds for it would anyone be willing to donate to that? 

We already have the spot where the monument is going to go.  The Mayor wants the school kids grades 7 & up to draw designs and we will choose the best design.

It's pretty awesome I'm going to be a part of history AGAIN!!  Since I was in Kuwait before the invasion and was actually in country when Saddam was captured.

Mischa.

Thanks everyone.  I also was thinking it's kinda weird it was US who freed the Iraqi people and maybe it will be the first "Monument" in the country.  That would be totally awesome!!

Had another meeting today.  By the time next meeting comes around which will be in 3 weeks August 15th we should have the kids doing the designs and we should have our certificate to start fundraising.  It was a very productive meeting and I can't wait til the next one.  They still have to set up the bank account for the donations and after that they will set up the PayPal account.

I have another meeting tomorrow Wendsday and I have a question.  How is GoDaddy.com for this site?  We were thinking about setting up a website for the Monument.  This is going to be crucial for fundraising and to promote the Monument. 

Also a "Monument" is different from a "Memorial".  A Memorial symbolizes someone who was KIA honoring them.  A "Monument" symbolizes everybody including the fallen.  This is why I'm so excited about being on this committee.

I will update everyone after the meeting tomorrow.

well, for this site i'd say it's been 95% great most of the time.  there were those dark times 2 separate times where we were having some problems with them.   maybe some of the others on here know of some better hosting though.   i'm sure there is out there.

buy the .com name you're thinking of from godaddy is fine to i believe.   that way at least you have it.    but ya.. i'd be curious to see what others think.   i believe there are better.

So now we have our letter of intent to the Cape Coral, FL Parks & Recreation.  Should be getting the letter of intent to the schools within a week.

So I have been tasked to set up the website for the monument. 

As I was asking the other day does anyone know of another website creator other than godaddy.com? 

I will have another meeting in 3 weeks instead of 2 since 2 weeks is the day after 9/11.

We should know more by than.
