URGENT NEWS!! Donations for Rita Janette Forester of the Carter Family Fold..

Early on Sunday morning December 6, 2009 flames destroyed the home of Rita and Bob Forrester on the A.P. Carter Highway near Hiltons, Virginia. Rita and her son Tyler escaped the flames but Bob did not make it out alive. Rita’s oldest son, who lives nearby is safe as well. Everything the family owned was lost in the fire including both of the family automobiles. Rita is the granddaughter of A.P. Carter and her mother was the late Janette Carter who founded the Carter Family Fold in the 1970s. Rita is the director of the Carter Family Fold which promotes and preserves bluegrass and old time music on the grounds where the original Carter Family lived and raised their families.Your prayers and support are desperately needed immediately to uplift and help the Forrester family at this time. An account has been set up by friends and supporters for your donations. Please do not delay in sending a financial contribution as soon as you can. No amount is too small in this time of need for this family. Please send contributions to: The Rita Janette Forrester Fund c/o BB&T Bank110 Gateway Plaza ,Gate City, Virginia 24251

Also a fundraising concert is in the plans in the near future to help with this worthy cause. Information will be shown here as concert plans develop.Please continue to Support the Carter Family Fold

Thank you.
