We're still wrapping up the ERB
STAR DEDICATION and ECOF 2023 Events.
I've attached the "Honor Role of Donors"
OPEN THE "STARS" WORD FILE HERE
This was an unprecedented event
for ERB fans and followers and
I want to publicly celebrate those who made it possible.
I have a few swag bags left --
maybe 12-15. These are not for sale, per se,
since I told the Chamber of Commerce we wouldn't sell items with the star logo on them,
but I am offering "late registrations" for those who want the swag.
Cost is $120, postage inclusive, and does not include the cookie or name badge--all six other items are included.
We'll post a photo of the bag and description of contents in a follow-up page.
I also have extra programs, that I will sell solo for $15 each including postage.
THE STAR PHOTO GALLERY
Thanks to Lisa Gordon Wither and Scott Tracy Griffin.

Nearly 90 years after he lived with Edgar Rice Burroughs in Palm Springs,

The immense history behind this shot makes it
one of the greatest images from the Star for ERB ceremony.
