Still in Love with Lucy

Dear Fellow Lucyfans:
As promised yesterday, here are a few photos from "Lucy's Birthday Weekend" celebration held August 3-5 in Jamestown, New York:
Wanda Clark and Frank Gorey, Lucille Ball's personal secretary and chauffeur, have Cindy LaHoz autograph copies of her new book, "Lucy at the Movies." Not due for release until the fall, copies of the book were available by special arrangement with the publisher.
On Saturday afternoon, beautiful weather greeted folks as they gathered for "Lucy's Snail Snacking Contest" -- featuring real snails!
Headliner Jerry Maren, an original Munchkin from "The Wizard of Oz," was on stage with his wife Elizabeth and interviewer Jim Roselle, when they received a surprise phone call from Desi Arnaz Jr., with whom Jerry guest-starred in a 1970 episode of "Here's Lucy."
Twins Mike (left) and Joe Mayer, who played the toddler Little Ricky, pose under their picture with Desi Arnaz on the exterior of Jamestown's Desilu Playhouse. They were the special guests for the "I Love Lucy Legend Event" held on Sunday of the birthday weekend.
