Sammie Davis Jr.
« on: December 05, 2003, 06:55:00 PM »
So, I just read in one of the old newspaper articles that Sammie Davis Jr. was a "fan of The Seed"  Does this mean he visited an open meeting like all the other famous people who'd visit these programs?
 Was anyone there when he visited?
 Did you guys "motivate" in The Seed?

well, Jackie Gleason lived about 10 miles from the Seed Ft Lauderdale and Art was a bit actor and frequenter of the Playboy club Miami. Also, rumor had it that he "helped" art carney get sober. Art ran with some of these guys.

Many celebs visited the Seed Ft Lauderdale including senator muskie and art carnie. Art was fond of talking about his friendships with the rich and famous.

Sorry, but no specific info on Sammy. Anyone else?

As far as motivating, yes we did. You can witness it, , in the infomercial "the seed of hope", if you can find a copy. I believe the actual term motivating was coined in the Seed st pete when I was there and extended to the straight by the original staff members of straight, all former st pete seedlings.
