Thanksgiving - A wonderful message from Faith

Dear Betty MacDonald Fans,

I got a wonderful mail from Faith and want to share it with you.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.



Dear Linde,

I did have a happy Thanksgiving. And, as always, before digging into the roast turkey and stuffing, I felt thankful for all the good things in my life. And among the things I'm thankful for are Betty, and Betty's loyal friends around the world!


Wolfgang Hampel, author of the Betty MacDonald Biography and Interviewer of Betty MacDonald's and Mary Bard's family and friends will receive the first Betty MacDonald Memorial Award sponsored by a Group of International Betty MacDonald Collectors.
There is a huge media interest in this price and we are going to publish a DVD about the Betty MacDonald Memorial Award.

Congratulations, dear Wolfgang Hampel.
