Funding The Lone Ranger Museum Display

Fred Foy is best known as the announcer for The Lone Ranger. It was Foy's memorable voice that opened the radio program with: "From out of the past come the thundering hoofbeats of the great horse Silver... The Lone Ranger rides again!" Foy wrote a book about the inner workings of the program but was unable to get it published before his untimely death. His daughter, Wendy, is now offering a signed and limited numbered first edition in order to raise money as a gift fundraiser to set up a museum display focusing on Fred Foy's history of The Lone Ranger. 

Only 250 copies of the book are available for a tax-deductible donation of $110, or more. These first editions will not be available for sale to the public so this is the only way you can get a copy. You can only get a copy of this book through this fundraiser. Each are hand-numbered and signed by Wendy Foy, Fred's youngest daughter. Check or money order can be made payable to "The Wabash County Museum" and the notation line should say "donation." The check or money order should be mailed to:

Wendy Foy
Po Box 1313
Wells, Maine 04090

Be sure to include your mailing address and if hand-written, legible so she can read it and know where to send the book to. 

And if you want to know more about Fred Foy, his daughter created a spectacular website dedicated to the voice that became synonymous with The Lone Ranger. I highly recommend it. Not only is this the most comprehensive website created by a family relative of radio and television's pop culture, but you will find yourself spending thousands of hours reading and listening.
