Thank you MDA for 13 AMAZING years!

Of course, a very worthy cause that I have been associated with is the MDA ~ the Muscular Dystrophy Association!  I’m in my 13th year with them as well!  They’ve had their ‘Lock-Ups’ for countless years & I’ve gotten to play Barney Fife & take mug shots with the ‘jailbirds’ for 13 years!  The world is ever-changing & so is the MDA.  The MDA has decided to discontinue the ‘Lock-Ups’.  My sincere thanks to the MDA & Mr. Jerry Bear, the executive director for 40 years of the Springfield, MO chapter, for allowing me to be a part of this fight to find cures, save lives, as well as help families in time of need.  I will miss this very, very much!  Here I am in Silver Dollar City’s Echo Hollow with over 4,000 people raising money for the MDA!  That is Mr. Jerry Bear, the executive director of the Springfield, MO chapter, watching me as ‘Barney’ talking with these amazing people!
