Boston Area IJBFC Gathering
I am pleased to announce that I will be in the Boston area at the beginning of June, and I am organizing an informal dinner gathering of IJBFC members for food, trivia, schmoozing, and laughter.
AND SPECIAL ATTENDEES!
Hollywood beauty KAY LINAKER (brunette at right with Phil Harris and at left with Phil Harris impersonator Eric Brolund) will be with us that evening. Kay (real name Kate Phillips) worked with Jack in Buck Benny Rides Again and Man About Town, and is a wonder of stories about her work in films both in front of and behind the camera.
Plus, Boston beauty and Benny grandchild Joanna Meiseles (pictured above with Eddie Carroll and husband Brad) will also be with us for the festivities!
