IMPORTANT FAN CLUB NEWS!
Through the years, we have reviewed ways to reduce the costs associated with the Fan Club so that more and more fans can have access to all of the features of the Fan Club without having to pay an exorbitant fee. As it is, the Fan Club costs only $12/ year and, in light of today's economy, a $1 a month fee seems pretty reasonable. However, we have come up with a new idea that is perhaps groundbreaking in today's environment. We have decided to make many of the features of the fan club accessible to all at no cost! That is, over the course of the next few months, we are going to revamp the website so it won't cost a fan anything to have access to news, concert tour schedules, the message board, the photo gallery and, perhaps most importantly, the music! At this point, we are asking that current fans do not send in any fees for renewal of their membership. For those fans whom have already renewed this year, we will be in touch with each and every one of you to make certain that you have the opportunity to receive a prorated refund of your membership cost. Watch for details in upcoming updates on this site!  


TRAVIS URGES HIS FANS TO HELP THE SIPESVILLE VOL. FIRE DEPARTMENT. 9 for 9!
Nashville, TN (August 5, 2002) – As Country singer Travis Tritt continues his summer tour, he will be encouraging his audiences to make donations to the Sipesville Volunteer Fire Department.
At each stop, he will tell his audiences of the heroics of the Sipesville Fire Department, the lead team on the scene of the recent rescue of the nine
Pennsylvania miners who were successfully retrieved after spending more than three days trapped in a flooded coal mine.
It is Travis’ hope that by relaying their harrowing story and sharing their web site, he will inspire his fans to donate money to help the fire fighters rebuild their dilapidated fire hall.

At a pre-performance backstage gathering in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday, August 3rd, country superstar, Travis Tritt made his own donation in the amount of $25,000.
Travis presented the check to fire chief, Mark Zambinini who, in return, gave Travis one of the recently printed Sipesville Fire Company T-shirts that reads,
“Nine for Nine,” representing the safe rescue of all nine trapped miners. Travis then visited with the over forty fire fighters and rescue volunteers who attended the show at Travis’ invitation and took part in the
backstage presentation.

Travis was personally moved to donate the money after witnessing the fire fighters' heroism on
television and hearing of how they were working from a broken down fire hall.
Upon meeting the fire chief, the other volunteer fire fighters and the volunteers who worked
round the clock to prepare food and take care of the waiting families,
Travis knew he had to continue to help them raise money and pledged to tell
their story and give their web site while on the road.

During an acoustic segment of Travis’ show that evening, he asked the volunteers in the
audience to stand and be recognized for their bravery claiming them to be our country's
true heroes.

TRAVIS TRITT TO DONATE 25 THOUSAND DOLLARS TO FIREFIGHTERS IN PENNSYLVANIA
Nashville, TN (August 1, 2002) – During morning radio interviews with WCOL and WHOK in Columbus, Ohio, Travis Tritt announced he will be donating $25,000 to the Sipesville Volunteer Fire Company, the lead team on the scene of the recent rescue of the Pennsylvania miners trapped 240 feet underground in a flooded coal mine for more than three days.

Travis will make the presentation on Saturday at his show at the Ohio State Fair in Columbus, Ohio - about 200 miles from where the men were trapped.

“I watched the rescue live, as I’m sure most of America did, and was inspired by the drive and dedication of the rescue workers on the scene,” relayed Travis. It was during one of the broadcasts, he heard a rescuer explain that they were working out of a broken down volunteer fire hall. At that moment, Travis decided to make a donation to help renovate the fire hall and to simply show his admiration for the volunteers’ dedication and bravery. Continued Travis, “With so many bad things happening on the news, it renewed my pride as an American to witness such an amazing and positive ending to what could have been another tragic situation. I hope that by making this donation I will inspire others to do the same.”

The $25,000 donation will go to the Sipesville Volunteer Fire Company to assist in the badly needed repairs and renovations of their fire hall, which has seen no upgrades since 1981. While plans for a state of the art renovation had previously been made, their building fund was too low to begin construction. The money donated by Travis will go directly to that fund.

In addition, Travis has invited firefighters from Somerset County and other nearby counties to attend his concert in Columbus as his guest and be a part of the backstage pre-show presentation.
