Worthy Fundraising Effort! Please Give!

Dear Readers,

The African American Military History Museum in Hattiesburg, Mississippi was badly damaged by a tornado earlier this month. My good friend, Tom Ward, of Spring Hill College, has launched a fundraising drive to help pay for repairs to the museum. He has posted a page on Fundly.com as a conduit for donations. Please give to this worthy cause and give generously. The address for Tom’s Fundly page is:


Thanks in advance for helping!
