Making History in Tupelo Mississippi.
Sharing is caring they say.
The Rev Frank Smith (standing, wearing sunglasses and hat) takes a bow in Tupelo 9 August 2003. Rev Smith is mentioned in "Last Train To Memphis" by Peter Guralnic on pages 19-20 in relation to helping an eleven year old Elvis learn to play his guitar.
Yours truly was kindly given the honour of giving the signal to turn on the water to the new "Fountain of Life" seen in the photo, which celebrates Elvis's extraordinary life.
Maureen my wife and I can be seen sat with Larry K Otis, Mayor of Tupelo at the time. We were there from Ireland, at his warm invitation.
Jim Palmer and Roy Turner of Tupelo are seeking publicity for their "Elvis Comes Home" Documentary which they are working on at the moment, and yours truly is helping them out by getting newspapers and radio to cover the story. So far we are doing quite well, but if anyone here would like to contact their local media about the story please let me know.
