Mr. Angus Wynn, Jr.

Great Southwest Corporation
Arlington, Texas

Dear Angus:

Last year, you made a most generous contribution to the Atlanta
Youth Opportunity Program by providing 4,000 tickets and $4,000
to be used by poor and underprivileged children to spend a day
at Six Flags Over Georgia.

The generosity of this gift and the spirit in which it was given
made it one of the most significant and meaningful donations to
the 1968 program.

For many of the more than 4,000 children and youth attending, this
was the only real vacation that they had, and their very first trip

to Six Flags.


The success of this program is manifested in the year-round requests
of youngsters wanting to know if they are going to be able to go to
Six Flags this summer.

While we in Atlanta do not want to unfairly impose on your generosity
and concern, I would certainly hope that such an effort can be repeated
again this year.

We are now in the process of planning our 1969 Summer Youth
Opportunity Program for Metropolitan Atlanta under the Chairmanship
of Mr. Clarence Elsas. A favorable response from you or the
Corporation on tickets or/and admissions for children for this summer
would be a real boast to our program goals of expanding the
recreational and educational opportunities of Atlanta's 70,000 poor

and underprivileged children.
