THE MISSION

KEEPING WOODSTOCK SPIRIT ALIVE FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS

What happened at Woodstock was more than just hippies running around in the mud and taking drugs .It was an unexpected turn out to see thousand of young kids hold each other together for 3 days of peace , love and music.

Their ideals is what our world need today an it is an important task for us to let the world know  the Woodstock generation was more than the caricaturist portrait that followed the event in the mainstream media years after.

More than a half century later,  America has gained a better  sens of perspective on the event that happened in August 1969 on the diary farm of Max Yasgur.
