      Our Tribute to Maureen O'Hara is now less than a month away. With well over 530 reservations already for the John Wayne Birthplace Museum Benefit Dinner where Maureen will speak, you'd better get yours now before they are all gone!



      This is Maureen O'Hara's public farewell to her legions of fans, and she'll discuss her life-long friendship with John Wayne. Proceeds from the Dinner and auction benefit the John Wayne Birthplace Museum.

      Visit johnwaynebirthplace.org/birthday for more information or to make reservations, or call the John Wayne Birthplace toll-free (877) 462-1044.
      Don't wait until it's too late!

      P.S.: Don't forget about the Western Swing Dance on Friday, May 24th too! And FREE showings of all of Duke's movies with Maureen O'Hara at the classic Iowa Theatre right on the Courthouse Square. It will be a fantastic Birthday Celebration you won't want to miss.

      LOL......me too. In the Winterset Super8 hotel house that is.:)

      Paula, we stayed in the Super 8 last year!

      Sad but true, we are not in Winterset this year, though we had very much hoped to be. It was just not a financial possibility for us. We still have kids at home, a daughter in college, and old clunker cars that have taken more than their fair share of our money the past few months. We are happy to hear that the event SOLD OUT - that means a nice chunk of change to go towards the building of the new museum and learning center!!

      Looking forward to hearing all about it, and of course seeing some awesome pictures. Paula, make sure you meet Bill of PA while you're there - he's a great guy!! I hope that we will one day be there the same time as you, so we can meet face to face.
