I've been able to meet a few of the surviving supporting actors by attending the fan club meetings in Ft. Washington Pa. This year Hal Fryar is supposed to be there. Moe's children Paul and Joan are usually there too.
Unfortunately, we've recently learned that our special guest, Hal Fryar, will be unable to attend the fan club meeting on May 4&5. He has been diagnosed with spinal stenosis and his doctor has strongly advised him to avoid travel. Hal was excited about returning this year and is very disappointed that he can't make it. At this late date we won't be able to replace him. We're still expecting Joan Maurer, Paul Howard and Curly Howard's grandsons, Brad & Darren Server. Also hoping that Moe's granddaughter Jen Howard will be there too.
Because Hal will not be attending, there will be a significant cost savings in the neighborhood of $2,000 (his plane tickets, hotel room, meals, the cost of printing up his give-away photos, etc). For this reason, I have decided to cancel the $10/person admission charge that was announced in the Journal. Admission will now be totally free, both Saturday at the Holiday Inn and Sunday at the Stoogeum.
Looking forward to seeing everyone,
