Truth be Told

For Freedoms is hosting ‘Truth be Told’, a series of three billboards by Fake Name along Highway 54 in MO, between Eldon and Bagnall. If you get a chance to make the drive, you’ll see them going north-bound towards Eldon.  This is an organization doing wonderful work wide and deep across the country, please check them out.
