We thought we were going to get some positive publicity from our May 5 Indiegogo kickoff, but the news story on KITV 4 ended up being a downer. Although the reporter told us he thought a sense of urgency would improve donations, the feedback we have received has been negative. We have gone to Facebook and blogs to try and set the story straight. We have sent a formal complaint to the TV station.
One lucky encounter this month was a visit from the great grandson of one of the owners of the Russell & Company shipyard that built Falls of Clyde. Hamish Russell and his wife visited from Australia and we were able to give him a tour of the ship, which he found a memorable experience. Here is a picture of our visitor.
