This is one of the hundreds of cards and posters presented to Willie Nelson in 2008 in Peru, Illinois, by the students of Peru Catholic School.  The kids wanted to thank Willie for performing a concert to raise money to help the school build a playground.  Thanks to Budrock for sharing this photo.

Just before Willie Nelson appeared in front of one of the largest crowds in Austin City Limits Music Festival (ACL) history, ACL shared this video from a few ACL headliners that were unable to attend his historic set.

Thank you, Willie (Farm Crisis Survivor)

“If you’re looking for a great story to read today, look no further. The title of this article tells it all: “Cancer isn’t stopping this Iowa farmer from seeingWillie Nelson.”

Dean Thomann, a farmer in Iowa, has found inspiration in Willie, saying; “He’s just a living legend.”

After reading about the way he survived the farm crisis of the 1980s, and the way Dean’s daughters talk about him today, it sounds like that “living legend” label might apply to him too.

We hope you have a wonderful time at the Willie Nelson concert, Dean!”

In 2007, Willie Nelson & Family helped raise funds to build a new play ground for the students of the Peru Catholic School, in Peru, Illinois.  Proceeds from the concert purchased new equipment for the school.  The children made posters for Willie, and they were hanging all over the venue, and Buddy Prewitt, Willie Nelson’s lighting director,  kindly photographed the posters and cards and sent them to me to share here.  The concert was part of the ‘Concerts for a Cause’ series produced by Louise La Grotto restaurant in Peru.

This is one of the hundred or so cards given to Willie Nelson by the students at the Peru Catholic School.

Posters were hung everywhere.

Thanks, Willie
