Fortunato- All details seem to be set for us except the time/location for the actual Awards ceremonies. On my schedule listing (sent to awardees), it still says, Awards Presentations, September 18, morning or afternoon; location tba. I guess we'll find out, when we're picked up at the hotel and taken there! Kath- do you know anything about this, and why the secrecy? The 19th is when we rehearse for the concert, have sound checks, etc. and some open time for visiting, sightseeing, etc. Evening of the 20th is the Concert by all awardees at Lisner Auditorium on the G. Washington U. campus. And that's it. I'm hoping many friends will come, as my actual family has grown very small. My brother Wilmer is the only sibling left. George, and sons Pete(with Amy) and Jon will be with us of course, and the 'boys' will accompany me at the concert. So glad they'll be there to hold me up!
Spaw! I'd have been grieving since the Hockhocking Festival if I had known you'd planned to be there, and then couldn't make it. But I have a feeling that we shall meet vis-a-vis sometime soon- we both just have to hang in there! Love to all, and thanks for your good thoughts, Jean
