The word is: So sorry I missed it! I heard it was fabulous! The Best Ever!
Thank you for your participation at BOND's Annual Book Author Events. I'm happy to report that they were a huge success!
Our authors, R.T. Rybak, William Swanson, Roxane Battle, William Andrews and Brian Freeman were outstanding. Many thanks to the wonderful committee that worked through the Spring and Summer to make sure everything was done "right."
Our Ad Book, chaired by Maraline Slovut, was very popular with our members. Please be sure to support our advertisers when you can. Their contributions added greatly to our Scholarship Fund.
Tuesday night, at Beth El Synagogue, we feasted on a delicious buffet dinner with sweets provided by our members. One hundred ten guests attended. We were entertained that night by two outstanding speakers!
On Wednesday, one hundred forty five guests attended our lovely and delicious luncheon at Oak Ridge Country Club. The speakers were very interesting and held the audience's attention. We especially liked to see so many men attend our evening event and luncheon this year and last. We enjoyed a question and answer time with the authors.
I would like to thank all of our DONORS who made these events so successful! Thank you's are also in order for all donations that were made by those who could not attend, to Common Good Books and to our many guests and Book Club members who attended. We apologize if we have omitted any names from our program.
We raised over $10,500.00 for the BOND Scholarship Fund! I am proud and honored to have been the Chairperson for these events.
By Book Author Committee Chair, Nettie Nebedrick
