Hi Folks!

Sasy Burns Dinner - The Burns Dinner sold out. It was an enjoyable evening for all who participated. Many thanks to Alex Murray, Bill Kennedy, Alec Brown, Christie Walsh and everyone who pitched in to make the event a success. Bill has put photos on the Facebook group page: Scottish American Society - Public group

Carol Leslies concert made it on the 2nd try. It was charming, as you might imagine. When she is not doing a Burns presentation, she is riding the wave of the resurgence of Jazz. Try her Facebook Page, Carol Leslie Jazz, for more information.

PBS' "Antiques Roadshow" has announced that Akron will be among five stops this summer for the show's 28th season. They will be in our area on Tuesday, June 6.
About 2,000 Akron-area residents who sign up online will win free tickets to the show through a sweepstakes drawing, PBS said in a release.
Now through March 13, 2023, you can submit your entry online for a chance to win two free tickets to one of the 2023 ANTIQUES ROADSHOW Production Tour events. Those wishing to attend to bring an item or two for appraisal will have until 3 a.m. Monday, March 13 to submit an entry, PBS said. Past shows have had up to 17,000 people applying. The location of the show wont be disclosed until those receiving tickets are notified, producers said.
The show brings antique appraisers to cities where tapings are held and allows residents to bring their treasures in to be evaluated.
Some of the lucky and more unusual finds will be included on the show that will air next year.
