THE EDITOR, Sir:
Many of my fondest memories as a child involved visiting the Hope Zoo with my mother and siblings.
On a recent visit back to the zoo with my young children, I was impressed with the renovations being spearheaded by Mr Kenny Benjamin, along with the Hope Zoo Preservation Foundation.
While the work clearly is not yet complete, it is obvious by the meticulous attention to detail, the professional, attentive and courteous staff, the perfectly manicured lawns and the new animals being added on a regular basis that the Hope Zoo is well on its way to becoming a world-class facility.
I have renewed hope that not only will I be able to enjoy the zoo for years come with my children, but that they, too, will be able to share this experience with their children in the future.
Anyone knowing Kenny Benjamin knows that whatever he associates himself with is done well and is bound to be a success, and I have little doubt that this will be more of the same.
Thanks, Kenny, keep up the good work!
JOHN P. AZAR
