The following is press release from the Board of Celebrating Patsy Cline:
As supporters of Celebrating Patsy Cline, Inc and our efforts to restore 608 South Kent Street, it is with great pleasure to take this opportunity to inform you that our dream is now a reality. On the front porch of her historic house this Friday, January 21, 2011 at 11:00 am, Celebrating Patsy Cline, Inc will be announcing to the world that renovations will begin at Patsy Cline’s Historic House located in her hometown, Winchester, Virginia with anticipated opening to the public in late spring of 2011. January 21 marks the anniversary of Patsy winning the Arthur Godfrey talent show in New York City in 1957 by singing “Walkin’ After Midnight. This talent contest launched her world-famed career, and at this time she was living in this house with her mother and siblings. Celebrating Patsy Cline will publish a new Facebook Page dedicated to Patsy Cline’s Historic House immediately following the Press Conference. Fans can follow the progress of the restoration and watch for news of the opening event.
