College students came from all over to build houses for Habitat for Humanity. Jim Killoran, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity in New Rochelle was hosting groups of students. The group from Beloit College in Wisconsin had the most exciting ride by getting stuck in a snow storm in Pennsylvania for four and a half hours and driving a total of 28 hours instead of 17. When these students were asked about the political protests and atmosphere in Wisconsin, the answer was it is an 45 minute drive from Beloit and "everyone is talking about it includng the professors."
Among those attending the gathering at Corommandel Restaurant on March 7 was Doug Fleming of the Thornton Donovan School. He said he had the greatest respect for the work of Jim Killoran and Habitat of Humanity. Rockwell, he said, "is about as American as anyone can get."
Killoran then spoke about his American dream to bring a Norman Rockwell Museum to New Rochelle. Emphasizing that Main Street in New Rochelle was most important, he wants to create jobs and hotel filled with tourists there. Rockwell, in his view, saw "life as it is," giving the Thanksgiving Meal painting as an example, adding "I don't think New Rochelle knew Rockwell was New Rochelle."Read more
