Facebook group forms to support saving Exeter's Ioka Theater

A group has come together on the Internet to save a precious Exeter landmark, the Ioka Theater.

A Facebook group spearheaded by Selectman Joe Pace was started to examine ways of saving the Ioka, which recently announced its closing on Dec. 24 after 93 years. What began with a few friends has grown to 300 since late last week.

"On Friday (Nov. 28), I sort of said it would be a shame for the Ioka to go away and become vacant or turn into apartments," Pace said. "It's such a historic landmark and an integral piece of the downtown. It would be a shame. So I started to reach out to friends of mine using the outstanding technology of online networking and this conversation started taking off." (More...)

On Facebook. Join the group.

This was a rather wierd scene we'd come across a couple of times - the ice that had frozen to a sign overnight would melt come morning and slide off. This is taken right outside of my high school.
