New Beginnings

Mid-Autumn marks the traditional time of celebrating harvests around the world.  For weeks and months now, each of us at the Center has been struck by the way Fred’s legacy has borne fruit more than half a century after it had begun. Along with our “older sibling,” Fred Rogers Productions, we have supported the development of the documentary “Won’t You Be My Neighbor,” directed by the Academy Award winning director Morgan Neville; the biography “The Good Neighbor,” written by our former executive director Maxwell King; and the upcoming film “You Are My Friend” currently in production, starring Tom Hanks as Fred Rogers.

    I thoroughly enjoyed watching the documentary “Won’t You Be My Neighbor,” and was so pleased to see how sincere Mr. Rogers was in his life and mission. As a young child, watching his show always gave me a much-needed sense of calm and comfort. I have always loved him and am eternally grateful for his impact on my life. I look forward to seeing “The Good Neighbor” and “You Are My Friend.”
