I’m writing to you from Myrtle Beach, where I’m spending
a few days with my girls and their children. We’ve been having
a great time swimming in the ocean and walking the beach. Next week
I’ll have some pictures to show you.

I want to thank everyone who came to see me and all who participated
in the fundraising events. Preliminary totals show that we raised around
$8,000.00 for the Foundation for Children’s Education. The money
will be used to support more children’s programs at the museum
and to help out schools that would like to incorporate our ideas for
art activities into their own curricula.

I hope you enjoy the pictures I have to share with you. Everyone looked
terrific dressed up in their ’50’s costumes for the Saturday
night Dinner Dance. I must confess that I turned in somewhat earlier
than most. There were many who “twisted the night away!”
