Since The Ribbon of Road Ahead was officially released on March 15, I have spoken to 4 groups and did two impromptu “readings”.
On March 21, I hosted a gathering at Prodigal Son Brew Pub in Pendleton, OR. It was truly fun and a delight to see friends, former co-workers, community members and even the gentleman who hired me for my first “grown-up” job out of college.
March 24th I spoke in Hermiston at my church sponsored by the Catholic Daughters. My relatives Al and Delora Clupny were there along with other former co-workers, community members, church friends and my first “boss” in the first “grown-up” job.
This day, book sales totalled over $1000 AMAZING
On March 31 Charlie and I travelled to my home town of Walla Walla for an event sponsored by Jeannette Barrow. Mary Rose Clupny was present! There were 11 Speech Pathologists, including the next “boss” who I followed in administration, friends from childhood and members of the Parkinson’s Community in attendance.
April 1, in honor of the designation of April as Parkinsons Disease Awareness Month, I addressed my home Parkinson’s Community at our support group meeting. Our special guest was a county commissioner who read a “Proclamation” declaring Parkinsons Awareness Month in Umatilla County.
The impromptu readings? Pendletons First Draft Series and Hermisotn Library Writers group.
