Again, Arlene, thank you for a wonderful presentation and for your continued support of Lynn University's Excalibur Society.

Dear Mrs. Herson,

On behalf of the Boca Trail Chapter of Women's American ORT I want to express my thanks and appreciation for your very interesting and entertaining program presented at the Stonebridge Golf and Country Club on November 29, 2001.

We all enjoyed your commentaries and video presentation of in depth personal interviews with nationally known personalities. We learned that the public image of celebrities was often entirely different from their private lives.

Thanks again for a most enjoyable and memorable evening.

Sincerely yours,

Miriam Smith
