Joe Ed Coffman putts the first 4 miles

Joe Ed Coffman, founder of the Friends of Fogelberg movement,  is out on the track this morning. When I left him, he finally got a relief putter and had completed 4 miles since 8:05am.

Head out there an if you don’t have a putter, he has an extra one. The one designated ball will do 23 miles around the track, the distance from Palo Duro Canyon gates to Comanche Trail golf course.


There is a basket full of blue balls to putt around the track on your own so you can also be a part to raise money for the Harrington Cancer Center. $5 donation or more is a putt in the name of a loved one you can write on list of those affected by Prostate Cancer. We will post those names on the blog after the event. Thank you for your support.

Fogelberg farewell

From the Peoria Journal Star …

“Fans from near and far gathered in what shade they could find from the glaring sun on Saturday afternoon to say goodbye to Peoria’s native son, Dan Fogelberg, a man whose music supplied the soundtrack to their lives.
“A memorial two years in the making, the three granite boulders bearing the etchings of Fogelberg’s lyrics were unveiled to family, friends and fans in Riverfront Park at a vista overlooking the Peoria River.
“Margaret Fogelberg, Dan’s mother who still resides in the East Bluff, said she finally felt closure after seeing the beautiful view and so many fans in attendance, close to 400. Fogelberg died from advanced prostate cancer on Dec. 16, 2007, at age 56.
“‘It’s amazing,’ she said in between hugs from fans who traveled from nearly every state to witness the memorial’s unveiling.”
