Gale McCray, currently appearing in Oklahoma down Dallas way, sends picture of himself and another actor in production who is originally from McAlester! I would say....certainly gives authenticity to the play! (photo above - Gale on left) www.artisanct.com

In a recent contest sponsored by Budget Travel magazine, Medicine Park was named 9th in 'America's Coolest Small Town' contest! And rightfully deserved in light of the past few years of restoration and new building that has gone on in MP. Check it out when you have opportunity.
Hope all enjoying the 'summer'........ Georgia
