Again, thanks so much.
How is everything going today. Just got your email. Been out of school for two weeks. Had chest pains and they rushed me off
to the emergency room from my class on the 12th. That was a scary situation. However, the new medication seems to be working.
I am seeing an end to the completion of my third book, When Teaching Was Fun. This is the story of when I taught our at-risk
children through country music (yes, George D. was a lesson). I was able to get nearly a hundred singers/groups to participate
through the five years of it's existences. It was the greatest time for me in education. Most of the children that were involved
are now my parents. So, I get to meet with them and discuss the good old days.
As for the society. I would be honored to join your organization. I will be mailing you a check for the membership fee of
my daughter and myself. We had such a great time when we visited last year. Mammoth Springs is a beautiful town.
Have a class. Will talk to you later.

Hi Eric, I appreciate you forming this society, I think it is very
beneficial for the world to know about the origin of the place of the idea for the Grand Ole Opry and the life of George D.
Hay. I will do what I can to help you promote this project,
