The theme for America On Wheel's 5th annual "Moonlight Memories Gala" Nov. 30 is the 1939 New York World's Fair.
In 1935, in the depths of the Great Depression, a group of New York City retired policemen decided to create an international exposition to lift the city and the United States out of depression. Not long after, these men formed the New York World's Fair Corp. The committee declared the New York World's Fair as "everyman's fair." The official colors of the New York World's Fair were blue and orange.
There will be explosions.
There will be death-defying acts.
There will be hand-to-hand combat.
There will be shootings.
There will be nods to iconic James Bond imagery and set pieces: a spectacular opening credit sequence with a title song by a popular recording star (here it's Adele), the silver Aston Martin DB5, the jangly guitar and brass instrumental theme, the martini (shaken, not stirred), the tuxedo, and scenes in MI6 headquarters, a casino (Macao) and a bedroom.

Unfortunately, poetry goes out the window and accusations can get pretty ugly when trees are involved in legal disputes, says a community forestry expert in The Pennsylvania State University's College of Agricultural Sciences.
"Most homeowners expect everyone to love their trees because they do," says Bill Elmendorf, urban and community forestry program coordinator and instructor in the School of Forest Resources.
