Part of the growing popularity of the Mississippi Blues Marathon and Half-Marathon is the level of detail and
planning that goes into the runner’s experience over the course of the event. The Fondren Express has
played a key role in that experience, whether providing rides to the start/finish or delivering runners to
blues clubs in downtown Jackson the night after the race. Everyone loves the trolley, the blues music
pumping through it and, of course, Captain Ron makes them all feel welcome.

The trolley came out to Castlewoods to pick up our party. The music was loud, the breeze cool, and the time
together priceless! Captain Ron is amazing! He's patient, funny, kind...especially in the midst of twelve 10-
year old girls! Thank you Captian Ron and Wes for the opportunity to work with you and be a part of such a
We all had a GREAT time! I had 26 SilverSneakers in attendance, and some brought their grandchildren.
Captain Ron was VERY ENTERTAINING! He even let Riley ring the bell! Captain Ron is going to feature our
SilverSneakers group in his next newsletter.

Just wanted to THANK YOU for what you and Captain Ron did to make this festival a success. I want to thank
you for bringing the people to the festival. Your big 18 foot banner made the stage Saturday. I hung it right
in the middle of the stage. I gave your number to about six people Friday and Saturday explaining how the
trolley helped and the graphic design & printing services you offered with the banner. Once again THANKS
for making this festival as grand as it was.

I just want to thank you for making my daughter's sweet 16th birthday special. Thank you for your patience,
hospitality, and professionalism. I would recommend this to everyone.
The Fondren Express was a convenient and cost effective way to add something special to our event, as well
as providing necessary transportation.
