The Spring Dinner

2006   On May 13, Adventuresses and their friends gathered at Table XII for the annual Spring Dinner. The traditional toasts were given by Mickey Fromkin (the Queen), Joyce Ann and Arthur Liebman (Irene), Allan Devitt (Holmes), Sandy Kozinn (Watson), and Lee Ballinger (ACD). Dana Richards provided a witty quiz on Canonical women.

Marina Stajic’s toast to Friendship focused on Marlene Aig and Pat Moran—two beloved Adventuresses who have been gone from our company for ten years. M.E. Rich spoke movingly not only about Pat, but also Lisa Jones Jennes, another member of the original Albertus Magnus group. Others sharing their memories of Pat and Marlene included Peter Crupe, Warren Randall, Ben Vizoskie, Susan Rice and Ev Herzog. Francine Kitts remembered Jan Stauber who died last fall. 

To complete the Spring Dinner's program, Judith Freeman spoke about weddings, while Joanne Zahorsky-Reeves discussed mothers in the Canon. Many of these toasts and papers will be appearing in this and subsequent issues of the Muse. As always, the evening ended in the traditional ASH songs.
