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.
