This is a just a quick entry for those who may be living in or in contact with people who live in the Daytona Beach area where the RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit is set up today and tomorrow.  By trusting a number of sources that appeared to be trustworthy, including Google Maps, the wrong address for Daisy Stocking Park has been shown in the newspapers and other media.  
     The correct address for the park is a block south of the corner of Green and Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Blvd., just east of the Bethune-Cookman University Registrar’s office at 589 Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Blvd.  To search online, look for 550 3rd AVENUE, not “Street.” We visited there yesterday after spending many, MANY minutes trying to find the park based on the inaccurate information.  There was a steady stream of visitors and three Tuskegee Airmen were there, signing autographs and chatting.  Parking is free and offers easy access.  They’re showing the longer version of the movie which is very touching while being informative.  If you live in the area or know anyone who does, please stop by or invite those you know to do so.

     Hours today are from 9-6; tomorrow’s hours are from 10-2.
