GHOST STORIES ENTHRALL
COWGIRL HALL OF FAME AUDIENCE

A standing room only crowd at the Cowgirl Hall of Fame in Ft. Worth, TX was enthralled by an evening of ghost and supernatural poems and stories presented by "Voices on the Western Wind" on Tuesday, October 29th. "Voices on the Western Wind", made up of Debra Coppinger Hill, Charles Williams and Tim Graham, alternated traditional poems, original poetry, stories and songs to present an evening full of thrills, chills and even a chuckle or two. In keeping with the theme of the program, entitled, "Halloween on the Chisholm Trail," poems such as "Tall Mem Riding"(S. Omar Barker), "Echoes in The Canyon"(Debra C. Hill) and "Saddles'(Charles Williams) were interspersed with other original works and such traditional ghost stories as the Texas Headless Horseman and Stampede Mesa. The trio closed the program with the old Marty Robbins favorite, "The Master's Call."

"This was wonderful!", commented Lisa Davis, the Director of Special Programs for the Cowgirl Hall Of Fame. "We didn't know what to expect, but the program and the crowd exceeded our hopes." The museum, located in Ft. Worth's Cultural District, has initiated a series of special events on Tuesday nights, including old Western movies and guest lectures. "This is the first time we've tried Cowboy poetry," Ms. Davis continued, "But it certainly won't be the last. We are looking forward to doing this again." Story by Charles Williams
