At the SLA 2003 annual conference in New York City, we often heard "Are you going to serve cake, again?" We did that and more. On Monday June 9th, 30 Division members (many sporting Blue Shirts) and friends stood in line on the Plaza at 0 Dark 30 for a chance to be seen on the Today show. About 8:07, we (and our banner) got our 15 seconds of fame, when Sharon Lenius gave Al Roker his own Blue Shirt on national television. Afterwards, the Blue Shirters did a "Roadmap of the Exhibits" to pass out thank you signs to vendors who supported our Conference programs and events. The next 50th Anniversary event was a Celebration Cake on Tuesday afternoon. Cake cutters included Jackie Davis, our most recent member, Wendy Hill, our most established member present, with assistance from Sharon Lenius, Anniversary Task Force Chair. Diane Schnurrpusch served as Master of Ceremonies. Diane was also responsible for gathering a display of historical materials showing the development of Military Libraries. Sandy Bradley contributed information on Navy Libraries. Hope you enjoyed the cake! Janice Lachance, appointed as Executive Director of SLA just four days earlier, attended the ceremonies and had an opportunity to speak with MLD Members. This event was sponsored by EBSCO Publishing and EBSCO Subscription Services and by Thomson - DIALOG. The final event was a Standard & Poors sponsored bus to the Fraunces Tavern on Wednesday for a no-host dinner where George Washington said farewell to his troops. Tanny Franco and Sharon Lenius were unsung heroines in arranging all of these events. In Washington, DC at the Military Librarians Workshop we will finish our anniversary year with a Wreath Laying ceremony at Arlington Cemetery on Dec 8. We also have some anniversary mementoes to pass out to full registrants.
