An Appeal to Your Generosity

Help Send Civil Rights Veterans Back to Mississippi
by Charlie Leck

As you may remember, if you are a regular reader of this blog, I'm returning to Mississippi in a few weeks for a reunion of Veterans of the Mississippi Civil Rights Movement. There are a number of the Civil Rights Vets who can't afford the trip or the costs while they're there. While there, we'll have a memorial service for the three civil rights workers who were murdered by the klan in 1964.

You could help out a great deal by making a contribution to (check payable to): Annual Mississippi Civil Rights Martyrs Memorial Service. That organization will use your contribution in a variety of ways – food costs, table rentals, porta potties, and housing and/or travel for veterans." I sent off $300 today. Anything you could send would be appreciated. Mail to:

Thanks so much!
