Cleveland Rocks!!!!

July 18th, 2008

Welcome to Cleveland!!!

My name is Ligy E. Alarcon, I am one of the new Product Development Managers. Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio brought me to appreciate this very industrial city! There are many great attributes to Cleveland but I want to highlight one of my many favorites. Being a lover of rock and roll it fits perfect to talk about one of the most visited museums in Cleveland and also worldwide,The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is the nonprofit organization that exists to educate visitors, fans and scholars from around the world about the history and continuing significance of rock and roll music. It carries on through its operation of a world-class museum that collects, preserves, exhibits and interprets this art form and through its library of rock lavish information. If you ever have the opportunity to visit Cleveland, you will feel at home, I certainly do…Cleveland is a great city, a place of connections - an evolving community, vibrant and viable, where we can all belong.

Today is a very special day…why because..Today in Rock and Roll History…….
