I want to say "thank you" again to everyone who has donated to The Southern Rock Hall of Fame. Some of you have even donated more than once. It truly makes me happy that you guys are willing to help out. To me, the guy or girl who donates $10 is just as valued as one who gives $1000. Just getting the project started has cost thousands, and that's before getting a building. Please be aware that we have no idea how long it will be before we have a building. My friends at the Blues Museum in Memphis started online and held yearly induction ceremonies for eight years before they got a building. Also be aware that we are looking long an hard at options in all of the interested cities and the choice will be based on many factors, including interstate accessibility, the full support of the city, and other determining factors.
I also wanted to mention that if you do decide to donate, we want it to come from your heart. Don't ever feel guilty because you are unable to help, or because all you have to give is $10. And please don't ever feel pressured to donate. If you ever feel that way, I beg you, email me and tell me why, and we will try to change the approach. (email@example.com)

A huge "thank you" to our volunteers who have helped out with spreading the word, helping organize and prepare for this massive project.
Although we don't yet have a building, we are actively seeking donations of memorabilia, stage used instruments, amps, branded road cases, artist worn clothing, paperwork, posters, contracts, cancelled checks, if it's southern rock or southern roots related, we'd love to hear from you. Of course, we would ask that you hold onto the item(s) until we get the building, unless they are paper goods and smaller items that we can securely store in the office. I have started a list of folks names and numbers and the items they have said they will donate to the museum.
That's it for now. Please stay tuned. Buffalo
