How You Can Help



The documentary DVD of the Cherry coal mine disaster tells the story. The video was very popular at the 100th anniversary and I did not have enough copies for everyone and had to do a second run and even a third run.
 Many schools and colleges have requested the DVD for showing to classes. The cost is $15.00 and that covers shipping too!
Payments can be made through paypal by using my email
