A look back at 2007

I can't believe that this year is just about over with! With 2008 looming on the horizion....let's look back at 2007, from a Welk point of view.

The big event came in March, when the Live Lawrence Welk Show came to town and I got to say "howdy" to the music makers.

It was also the year that the Aldridge Sisters appeared and performed at the Crossnore Heritage Fesitval in Avery County, NC.

Kathy and Janet Lennon's Best Pals dolls took the toy world by storm, one doll convention show at a time....

Tanya Falan appeared as a special guest of the Barrister's Charity Ball in Chicago, and the Welk stars reunited in Branson in September for several shows at the Champagne Theater.

That February, I officially turned thirty, and speaking of birthdays.....

Ralna English had her birthday cruise to Alaska in June, celebrated by her family, friends, fans and the Delos (Ken and Marilyn).

Ava Barber performed in Branson as part of the Grand Ladies of Country Music revue.

And there were many Welk concerts held in the familiar places such as Germantown, Goshen, Lancaster and Bear Creek Farms.

2007 also marked the final bow for Mahlon Clark and Charlie Parlato.

Also, the Burgess family went on their African Safari to Kenya....

Oh, and the new season of Welk shows commenced it's twenty-first season in's great viewing so far.

I debuted a new blog while this one is still going strong as well as my webpage.

Here's to a great 2008, and the fun it shall bring!
