Congratulations on the Observer’s 40th Anniversary (1978-2018)!!! If you’ll allow me some personal nostalgia, I remember Chuck introducing me to your parents sometime late in 1977 (when we first started hanging out) and then the year the Observer was “born” Chuck and I were married at First Pres on Euclid in October 🙂 so I guess “it was a very good year”(can’t you just hear Old Blues crooning??? corny, I know but I couldnt resist:)
Re: the Fox blurb, just wanted to clarify/add in some important additional info regarding the the volunteer organization/founding of the Fox Historic Theatre Foundation; both Chuckie and Jane were the two individuals who got the ball rolling, so it’s appropriate to refer to them as co-founders of the Foundation. I remember the 2 of them initially meeting here at “Villa d’Este” (Chuck’s studio– sorry, really don’t harbor delusions of grandeur, just trying to make a tiny joke haha;) for 4-5 months before bringing in other people equally committed to saving the theatre. So I would greatly appreciate it if you could publish something to that effect in the next issue of the paper:)
Thanks again for keeping your parents’ legacy alive through this one-of-kind community newspaper; hope all is well with you and yours.
