This event was great fun. The feedback from the patrons was tremendous. All had a great time. The second part of the story is that we were not able to personally present Mr. Williams with our gifts (Plaque as a an Honery Member, and a custom designed Robb TK-21 T-Shirt) due to our handler. However the gifts were presented which were well received by Mr. Williams. The next day Kathy and Duffy were able to attend the concert AND get his poster signed.
