FDR’s historic New Deal speech of 75 years ago is now available at our FDR American Heritage Center Website.
July 2, 2007 therefore marks the beginning of our commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the launch of the New Deal, which ushered in the longest sustained period of progressive/liberal reform in the history of the United States.
We at the FDR American Heritage Center Museum are also excited to announce that our new home will be in Chicopee, Massachusetts. We plan on having our grand FDR Center Museum re-opening on March 4, 2008, the seventy fifth anniversary of FDR’s inauguration as President of the United States on March 4, 1933, the beginning of the Hundred Days that initiated the New Deal reforms that forever changed America for the better.
As we move our FDR Center Museum and programs from Worcester west to Chicopee and the Pioneer Valley, I hope you all become actively involved with our agenda to keep the New Deal flame alive and burning brightly!
I invite you to read the June 18, 2007 Springfield Republican newspaper article concerning the specific plans of the FDR Center Museum in its relocation to Chicopee. I also invite you to become active partners with the FDR Center Museum, Chicopee and its forward thinking and dynamic Mayor Michael D. Bissonnette, and Elms College in the establishment of the Roosevelt Public Policy Institute. The best is yet to come!
