It was HOT, so Shirley B. , Nan, Shirley L., and the rest of us were very glad to find a big top to sit under.
This heat ain't nothin' for Shirley Burwell. See how she survived Africa while on safari:

The gathering crowd. Many were lining up to purchase
the new commemorative ERB stamp; 
others were in line to have them "cancelled".

The last event I attended at the Tarzana Cultural Centre was much more somber
. . . and very sad. I flew down to do a eulogy at Danton Burroughs' Memorial Tribute
.

Jonathan Hart watches as various dignitaries 
are acknowledged by the MC.

Excitement mounts 
with the trooping of the colour...

ERB's Military Connecction
See ERB: THE WAR YEARS
It was very fitting that there be a military presence considering
Edgar Rice Burroughs' lifelong involvement with the military:
Michigan Military Academy, US Cavalry, WWI Militia officer,
Hawaiian civil defence after witnessing the Japanese attack,
and then served as the oldest accredited journalist in WWII.

Kala! Where are you!?!

Kala!?!

I'm over here, Tarzan, looking for Tarzan Denny Miller!
The costumed Tarzan and Ape added a bit of novelty to the event.

Congressman presents the flag that was flown at the capitol
to Burroughs family members.

The Burroughs family receiving 
special commemorative certificates.
A favourite moment was when one of the dignitaries
came running out of the seated assembly toward us in a panic.
He was about to go on and apparently the trash brigade for the event
had collected his speech for the dumpster.
After frantic searching the speech - a long one - was recovered and
the much-relieved gentleman took the stage to address the crowd.
