Hey Y'all! How are you? I am doing just great myself, thanks for asking. I have had a very busy week doing signings for my new book and covering the different events you have invited us to. I have had a ball.
I want to first thank all of you for being at my Rosa Pryor Music Scholarship Fund Press Party at the Caton Castle Oct. 11, it was the BOMB! Thanks to Ronald Scott and his staff for their sponsorship, their hospitality and the service they gave to my organization. I also want to thank Phil Butts and his band for sponsoring the dynamite music for my guests, and Lauren Thompson, radio personality and network owner for acting as our hostess for the evening. We are able to give five children scholarships this year at our up-coming Scholarship and Award Banquet on Oct. 27 at the Forum Caterers. It is not too late for you to get your tickets. Just give me a call at 410-833-9474.
