Re: [genpcncfir] ELIZABETH BRILEY
- Dear Martha Gay, I wanted to also tell you that there is a Downs/Hicks/Sutton reunion on July 26 in Jamestown, Tennessee, which I am going to attend. It is a small reunion of about 75-100 people from Tennessee, NC, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Texas etc. It happens to take place during the time of the "World's longest flea market" which covers about 4 states, if you like that type of entertainment. There are at least two motels but we stay at the smaller and less expensive Jordan Motel, If you want to get together with me after I get back home, I'll be glad to help you with what I can. Cletus Diwns Lloyd and I have worked on these lines for about 10 years now - although she is a whole lot better at explaining the lines than I will ever be. Good luck for now, and please keep in touch. Arlene (Wills) 919/781-3625, email awills@..., 1112 Manchester Drive, Raleigh NC 27609-5155.
