Yes on 8

You probably haven't heard much yet on Yes on 8 but that is about to change with a couple big announcements.
First is the Yes on 8 Action Center opening on Thursday.

This Thursday, Oct 9th, the National Trust for Historic Preservation will open the doors to an interactive pop up space designed to build support for Issue 8 – the Hamilton County ballot initiative that would help raise much needed funds to restore Union Terminal.
Yes on 8 Action Center: Opening Night!
Thursday, October 9, 7:00-9:00 PM
511 Walnut Street (Fifth Third Bank Building on Fountain Square in the old Jones the Florist space)

There will be photos will be on display highlighting both the beauty and need for repair at Union Terminal.
A collaboration with the My Union Terminal Campaign Committee, the Yes on 8 Action Center will be a one stop shop for saving an iconic piece of Hamilton County’s history. Visitors will be able to learn more about the restoration plan, add their memories to a community story wall, pledge their vote, and even step inside Union Terminal’s iconic murals for a special photo opp. And of course, there will be boat loads of “Yes on 8” buttons and yard signs for the taking.
It’s a night you won’t want to miss! RSVP today!
The Yes on 8 Action Center will be open daily from 11am - 6pm until the election.

The other big announcement is based on social media, the “Thunderclap Campaign”. The Cincinnati Museum Center hopes to gather at least 500 people to blast out tweets and facebook updates all at the same time. They state "We need to get 500 people to commit to post and tweet our “Save Union Terminal” message in unison on October 21. I bet they get way more people than that but with 500 people committed to this they’ll reach a critical mass on social media. The hashtag #VoteYesUT will instantly be a trending topic on twitter and facebook that day from the sudden surge of posts."
Join the Thunderclap HERE and get a reminder on October 21st to post to twitter and facebook.

We all agree on one thing, The Union Terminal is in desperate need of help. Lets not kick the can any farther down the road. The Union Terminal needs repairs now, the sooner we do it the less it will cost.
These are a few of the pictures I got back in June 2012 on a behind the scenes tour and I can't imagine its gotten any better.
