The Association of Concerned Mid-Mountains Residents is appealing for donations towards legal fees to fight the Council's proposed demolition of the Lawson Mechanics Institute. The group has tried injecting goodwill, sense and reason into the debate about the hall but some councillors stubbornly persist to vote for its demolition, even though this is not necessary for the highway widening, even though the majority of the community wants to keep it and even though no plan for the community site where the hall stands has been presented.

Remember the councillors who voted for demolition.
Angel, Van Der Kley, Hamilton, Frappell, Myles and Creed at the September Blue Mountains City Council elections!

Now the only remaining option is to fight the decision in court. All donations toward legal fees will be gratefully accepted and acknowledged with a receipt. Please make out a cheque to "Association of Concerned Mid-Mountains Residents" and send it to PO Box 54 Lawson 2783 and don't forget your address for a receipt. Help save and put to good use one of the last remaining Mechanics Institutes! Thank you!
