Tania-Maria Xavier attended the induction ceremony on March 18, 2010 and will bring you some interviews of this celebrated event. Lamonte McLemore, Billy Davis and Jarred Townson (Sho-Tyme), Ron Townson's grandson were presented with a plaque. Tania-Maria Xavier also presented them with an illustration "St. Louis Native Sons" by Andre Harris in memory of Ron Townson.
Sadly, Marilyn McCoo tripped on a rug, fell and broke her hip and was not present and Florence LaRue had a previous engagement in Florida and also was not present.
