Bob Reardon's Celebration, "All About Bob", will be much better than TV's Pan Am!

Bob Reardon and Mary Ann Gallagher talking with "Red" Kennedy, (r) retired NWA Captain, at the "Remembering Donald Nyrop event at the NWA History Centre, June, 2011

Just got off the phone with Richard Moody, who is producing the "All About Bob" event on Monday evening, Oct. 3, from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. at the Officer's Club.
Richard let me in on some of the surprises in store for Bob. I am really excited that I will get to meet some illustrious folks I've only corresponded with, until now.
There will also be dancers, singers, a 3-D cake and enormous fun.
Bob is celebrating his 60th year as a flight attendant/purser for NWA/Delta. To say he is a legend is an understatement. At 87 years old, I wouldn't be surprised if he is the oldest flight attendant in the world.
I loved flying with Bob in the late 1950s and have written a chapter about him in my book, Fujiyama Trays & Oshibori Towels - Recalling a time when passenger flight was an adventure and the Boeing Stratocruiser ruled the skies.
Now we'll see each other again. I can hardly wait.
If you are just now deciding to attend, hurry up and email Lori Rothmund or Richard Moody
Then come to the Officer's Club at the airport - 395 Highway 5 and Post Road, St. Paul, MN Monday at 4 p.m. with your $20 per person cover charge. It will be worth every penny.
I was not impressed with Pan Am's debut on TV last Sunday evening. However, "All About Bob" will be impressive. Please join us!
