OTR Foundation is working around the clock to bring a creative space to the Eastside of Pueblo where gangs and drugs run rampant.   It’s been some time renovating these abandoned homes that were donated over the course of 3 years.  With very limited funds we’ve managed to finish one for art and makerspace and almost completed the second for music and radio station.   After launching our 98.5 FM LP station we’re finding a voice for the community to raise its concerns and talk about the issues facing the Eastside. Our third house will be a while before we can find funding for that, but eventually that will become a media, virtual reality space.   Fun on Fifth St. is where it will be soon!   In the meantime we’re enjoying the (more…)

Our dear friend and musician Salvatore Pace has lost his battle with cancer and left us today (Mar. 13th).  We know he’s in a better place and finally free of his pain.

Please send me any pictures you might have of special moments with Salvator so that we can add them to the “celebration of life” movie being produced.

This is from his son Tory….

My father, Salvatore Pace, passed away at 1:11 AM last night taking away the pain that consumed his body. Dad was an amazing person who left a mark on everyone he met. If you knew him, you know what I’m talking about. He was one of a kind, and the absolutely kindest person I’ve ever met.

His friend Janet Wilson has offered to put together a video and slideshow of his life for his memorial party. She needs photos from all parts of his life. If you have any, please send her a direct message or email her pictures to janetwilson79@gmail.com. Stay posted for a date and time for the party.

RIP Dad

Can we rise up – The People’s Assembly?

Yesterday Joe & I met with Robert who is part owner of a beautiful historic church and towering icon consuming 5 lots.  This was our second meeting so we could find out exactly what could take place as far as securing this fabulous historic church in order to bring more good to east Pueblo. We had a perfect visit in which a dream of providing health care to those in need surfaced and I thought about how much good we could do in 18,000 Sq Ft of space.   So, I got on FB and talked with Sue from Eugene Oregon who was instrumental in starting “Occupy Medical” on the west coast. From the days of a tent in the encampment to a roaming bus converted to provide much need healthcare for those who don’t have access is just amazing. I realized last night that the OTR-Foundation will have to find a way to make this work!  We HAVE to be the change we want to see, it’s the only way forward. 

If anyone has access to medical providers, nurses, etc., not to mention anyone who could support us financially please reach out to see if they will help us.  We will need a bus load of miracles to pull this off, but then it’s a church right? Don’t miracles happen there? (Janet)
