One of Marty’s (or “Martin” as Shirley would always call him) dreams was to have a place where Shirley would always feel at home. So that Shirley would always have a place to perform, Marty bought an empty lot in Fawnskin, California, and transformed it into a wonderful, family playground, called “Fawn Park.”
A stage for Shirley was erected at the far West end.
Fawn Park was set up as a non-profit organization as a memorial site to the victims of 9/11. Marty was able to secure a girder from one of the fallen towers and is displayed proudly within the park.
