Elvis fan club pushes sale of state tags

The Tupelo Elvis Presley Fan Club is encouraging anyone interested in a Mississippi Elvis Presley tag to place an order soon.
The speciality tag, approved during the 2008 Legislative session, features the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll and an image of his birthplace in east Tupelo. The tag design and concept has been approved by Elvis Presley Enterprises.
Three hundred tags must be pre-sold before the state Tax Commission begins production on the tag. A special tag fee of $31 is due with the order application. If the 300 goal isn’t reached soon, production on the tags could be delayed to 2010.
A license plate application can be found on the club’s Web site: www.tupeloelvispresleyfanclub.com/news.html
The CREATE Foundation is managing all funds associated with the tag. A portion of the license plate fee will go to support the fan club’s charities.
Visit the club’s Web site or send an e-mail to tupeloepfans@comcast.net for information.
