Three Ways to Remember Paul "Easy" Arnold of the Gospelaires


There are several ways to remember Paul Arnold of the Gospelaires of Dayton, Ohio:
​1) Help Circle of Vision Keepers with its Paul Arnold and the Gospelaires tribute compilation project. Whatever your musical genre, share your appreciation of the Gospelaires' music through song and generate funds to help the Dayton community.​
Go to www.circleofvisionkeepers.org to find out more about this project, organized by Amy Kreitzer.
 
2) Send letters of support to the Wright Dunbar Walk of Fame Committee to have Paul "Easy" Arnold and the Gospelaires of Dayton, Ohio inducted into the Dayton Walk of Fame.  The committee's application theme is Paul Arnold - Ride that "Gospel Train" into the Dayton Ohio Walk of Fame. Supporters can send letters to Khadijah Ali and she will submit them with the actual application in March.  Her contact info is khadijahali97@yahoo.com and phone is 937 -296-1077.
