After months of permits and construction, set-up actually began and took three weeks. Two gigantic moving trunks delivered the Pink Ribbons Crusade Collection to the ship. A crane was required to hoist the large display cases onto the top deck. Meanwhile all the Pink Ribbons volunteers arrived and began unpacking, inventorying items, lovingly installing textiles onto specially-created forms, and placing everything in the exhibit according to the master plan. Queen Mary management and crew even got into the act--"lending a hand" in the final days assuring the eagerly-anticipated exhibit would open on time. And that it did--thanks to the efforts of so many.
