    All events are held in the G. C. Rann Auditorium on the second floor of the museum. The late G. C. Rann and his wife Maurine and the citizens of Decatur began restoration of the auditorium, and the completion of the restoration process has the auditorium a showplace.  We have a full schedule of events planned for the rest of the year.

Well, Folks, at our last Gospel Opry program in February I committed to get an address to you all hoping that
some of you might be able to send a comical type of "Get Well" card to one of our singers, Starks Smith, of Poolville. Starks has been enduring a great many problems with his health and is beginning to loose his usual high spirits. If you can, please use the address below to send him a note of encouragement--the funnier the better.

Starks Smith, 6189 Lone Star Road, Poolville, Texas 76487

Looking forward to seeing you all at the next Gospel Opry on Monday night, March 26th, at 6:30 PM in the Wise County Heritage Museum in Decatur.

Thanks a bunch.

Dear Sing-Along Friends:

 It is time again for our monthly Gospel Opry Program.  Tomorrow night at 6:30 PM we will gather in the G.C Rann Auditorium at the Wise County Heritage Museum to pick up our books and join together in singing.  After the past week, it looks like we should have good weather without any ice to slip/skate around on.  Come join us--and bring all your friends.
