friends who also believe in miracles with instructions
for them to forward it to five of their friends and so on. I know it's
a long shot, but if we can capture in words the spirit of our little town
maybe we could make something remarkable happen. If we are unable to raise
enough money, we'd need to make sure that it would be ok with the donors
for us to donate the money to a charity of some kind.
A few years ago, I worked as the president of the Telephone Pioneers,
a group of volunteers that raise money for charity and other projects.
learned that words can be very powerful. If you can find words to touch
the heart, you accomplish great things. I'm willing to try. So, you'll
be receiving an email from me in a few days and you have the choice of
deleting it and telling everyone that I've been sitting a little too close
to the television, or you can think of five friends who want to be a part
of something remarkable.
I am also starting a new topic on the message board and I need your help.
I want to capture as much about the history of Dora as possible. Any information
you can provide will be helpful. I want to do a detailed history of our
area. If you have photos of Old Dora, if you know of anyone who has written
down any facts or know where I can find any information about the history
please put it on the message board. I called the Daily Mountain Eagle
today and they have archives on microfilm of the paper all the way back
to the 30's. I'm interested in any stores or other businesses that were
here, train wrecks, bad storms, or other stories. Nat Self's book will
be a great resource. I'm excited about this project too.
Before I close, Asa Faith Randolph and her sister Johnnie Farris are trying
to find out the names of the kids in this photograph. If you know any
of these folks, please send the information to me. (Rick
