How the Space Center came to be at Stone Gate

Well, I'm back again. A lot has been going on in my world in the last month! We have some exciting news.....we are building a space center. Some of you may be familiar with the Christa McAliffe space center. Well, it closed last year. A lot of people were so upset by it. I have never had the opportunity to go there, but my husband went in high school a couple of times and loved it. We had a close friend who had worked for the district and he told us about the space center closing. My husband Ryan being the person he is asked "what can I do to help"? Our friend replied "Well, unless you can make space simulators I don't know if you can help".
For those of you who know my husband know that he would do anything for a friend. He went to work (Stone Gate) and told the board of directors what was going on and what they thought about maybe looking into building another space center at our facility. Over the month of December they decided to go for it. Here is the website for you to check out: Discovery Space Center. We really wanted to carry on the legacy of the space center that it's creator Victor Williamson has made. And also be able to give kids an awesome out of this world experience! We are so excited to be working with him and former space center staff in building this new space center. It has been overwhelming at times the amount of people who are so willing to come and help with design of the ships, painting, construction and much much more. They are really great people! So, in a nutshell that's how the space center came to Stone Gate. It has been a whirlwind and very busy but hey, it's better than being bored! It also gave me a great excuse to start creating alien cookies, I will post about them later.
