That meant a lot to me. My Boo-Boo and I covered the “Liberty Live” Community event in Randallstown. We also did a book-signing and covered the festival at Mt. Oliver Methodist Church on Old Court Road which was very nice, seeing so many of the community folks socializing and enjoying each other company. Last Friday and Saturday, we covered and did book signing at the “Ruth Kirk Fun Festival”, celebrating 21 years hosted by Cleve Brister and Ruth Kirk’s Children held at the Franklin Square Park.

Many of the politicians were there including Senator Shirley Nathan-Pulliam, President of City Council, Jack Young, Shelia Dixon, Councilman Pete Welch and his mother Agnes just to name a few. This too was very successful event with people from the neighborhoods and the community of thousands who came together to shop at the vendors, listen to the great music and enjoyed the live entertainment. It was well organized. The last day ended with Rosa Pryor’s Motown group from out of DC “Signature Live” and Baltimore’s own fantastic group, the Spindles.
