Group seeking Elvis to rock for former jail

Published 9:30am Tuesday, October 1, 2013

We are looking for the best Elvis Presley impersonator in Lawrence County.

As part of our fundraising event, the Historic Jail Preservation Corp. is holding a competition to find those individuals who think that they can do a great Elvis impersonation.

We will be awarding cash prizes to the three best.

Be you young or old, man or woman, if you want to join in on the fun leave a message at (740) 894-1352 or (740) 894-3085.

The competition will be held at Burlington’s “Old Jail,” located in the 7400 block of County Road 1 in South Point (Burlington) at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19.

We are also looking for artists and crafters who wish to display and sell their pieces. Call (740) 894-5689 for details.

This is just part of our plans as we try to raise the needed funds in our efforts to complete Lawrence County’s Bicentennial Project, the restoration of Burlington’s “Old Jail” which is the last standing structure when Burlington was Lawrence County’s county seat
