Let's all remember the generosity of these businesses through out the year and return their support by shopping locally when we can. The catalog companies are great, but lets remember these guys that have helped out the Greer Family so greatly.
Please also try to remember, no matter how irritating you may find something, whats important right now is this little girl, its time to pull together and let the little things slide.
Thanks for listening,
Marty Smith President Kentuckiana Drag Racers Association

;D A standing O for everyone involved in the benefit for Kaylee yesterday. It was AWESOME!!! ;D ;D The auction was beyond imagination, the bids that people were so willing to give, no other word quit fits but AWESOME!! I would love to know the final total raised for the day, I'm sure it was a pretty big number.
I heard someone talking about a magazine photographer that was there, is that true?, would love to see any pics from the day. It was such a big day, it was hard to get around and see everything.
Thanks again for everyone involved, you are wonderful people!! Michelle
