Friends,

I am associated with an arts and heritage group, OCAH, which desperately needs help. The Osceola Center for Arts & Heritage is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to reviving, restoring and promoting the arts and the artistic heritage of the American south's Delta Region. 

Located in Mississippi County Arkansas, Osceola is one of the most economically depressed communities in the most depressed congressional district (AR-1) in the United States. It has not always been this way. The region that produced artists such as Johnny Cash, Albert King and Carol Cloar, is fading into the dust. Business giant and founder of Holiday Inn, Kemmons Wilson, claimed Osceola as home. 

The mechanization of the modern farm, an interstate highway system that bypasses the town, the death of the passenger train and Mississippi River travel have isolated the town of Osceola. Abandonment and neglect are slowly destroying the last remnants of a once thriving economy. 

OCAH is committed to bringing this spirit back through arts and heritage programs. Plans for working with the school system to supplement their arts programs, which are gravely underfunded, is an early goal of the organization. Offering low rent studio space and performance venues for working artist is another lofty goal that will need a boost from the public and private sectors in order to become reality. 

I have reissued my latest book "Squares of Light" as a Special Edition. A large portion of the proceeds from this publication will be donated to OCAH for their use in making these goals possible.

This is what I can do with what I have. If you do nothing more than pass this on to a friend... it will be greatly appreciated.

A PayPal button is also available for making donations. 

Thanks
J. (Jason) Montrell-Stark
