I really enjoyed the reunion. I did very well selling my brother Ed’s novel. Thank you for the opportunity to share his book with the community. It was fun for me. I got to see a lot of folks that I didn’t know until they introduced themselves. Many signed a book for me for the memory.
The entertainment was beautiful, lots of fun. Meal was marvelous. I just loved the music. We stayed to the end of the dance and I sold more novels there. Was that a party or was that a party?!
If any one wants Ed’s novel and pen just ask them to comment here and send me their name. I’d be more than glad to send it out. They are sellng for $10.00 now. Yours truly, HELEN ROSE EVANS
