The Tupelo Elvis Presley Fan Club is expanding to accept members from birth to 18. The new group will be known as the Little Hound Dogs.
"It's $10 for a lifetime membership," said Diane Witt, chairwoman of the Little Hound Dogs committee. "That's a great deal."
For people older than 18, a lifetime membership costs $100.
Everyone's invited to the new group's first meeting, which will be 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Neely building in Veterans Park. Hot dogs will be served.
Fun is certainly an objective of the Little Hound Dogs, but so is service.
The Tupelo Elvis Presley Fan Club has raised money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Tupelo Regional Rehabilitation Center and the March of Dimes.
"For the Little Hound Dogs, we'll do things to benefit the Humane Society," Witt said. "That's mainly because children love animals and Elvis loved animals."
The adult version of the fan club has about 700 members, including international fans. The Little Hounds Dogs is a way to boost the numbers, and to help keep Elvis' memory alive and well for future generations.
