Hello Elvis Fans,
Thank you for visiting the Elvis' Angels Fan Club web site. This club was formed after I held an impersonator contest in 1997 at James Burton's Rock 'n Roll Cafe in Shreveport, Louisiana. Several ladies who attended asked me about forming a fan club that "did things" and brought fans together. With the help of our local television station, KTBS Channel 3, our newspaper, The Times, and KLKL Oldies Radio 95.7, I was ready to receive applications and start the fan club. On my birthday, August 14, 1997, from the lawn of Graceland, I announced that our club had been formed and would begin having meetings in September.
We started out with a handful and, to date, over 540 fans from across the country have joined our club, with 80-100 active members on the roster. We have had members from England, Germany, Israel, Australia, Canada, Sweden, Finland, Argentina, Poland, Algeria, and Guam. We have an average of 25-30 members from Louisiana, Texas, and Arkansas attend the monthly meetings in Shreveport. We also have Honorary Members, including James and Louise Burton, Ronnie McDowell, George Klein, D.J. Fontana, and the late Frank Page and Tillman Franks, to name a few.
I am very proud of our club's charitable donations which include St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, James Burton Foundation, American Cancer Society, American Diabetes Association, American Heart Association, March of Dimes, Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation, Salvation Army Angel Tree, Toys for Tots, and Holy Angels of Shreveport, to name a few.
In November, we donate to our local food bank in Shreveport. Elvis always helped other people so we will continue to make donations in his memory to help others.
The fan club helped raise the funds to have the statues of Elvis and James Burton placed in front of the Municipal Auditorium to honor their contribution to music.
Elvis' Angels Fan Club is open to any age Elvis fan - young or young at heart. We welcome visitors at our monthly meeting on the third Saturday of the month. If you have any questions, please feel free to send an e-mail to me at Elvisluv7@aol.com.
Sincerely, and with love for Elvis always,
President, Elvis' Angels Fan Club
LONG LIVE ELVIS AND HIS MEMORY!
