I do enjoy being part of an online community. I hope you have a great time this afternoon - I'll be thinking of you.
Hopefully some day I will visit New York and see the plaque for myself :D

Lightning,

You knew we were all sitting here just waiting for a glimpse. Thank you for being so quick in posting this link. Were you the photographer? From the look of the crowd, I am now eagerly awaiting more videos! I hope all had a wonderful day!!

Best regards,
Mary

Looks really good!

And I bet nobody pays attention to the comma that is placed before the last quotation mark... :razz:

Thank you so much for the link, Lightning :D . Leonard's and our dear Esther is the quintessential ambassador for him... so much warmth and gratitude just pour from her.

The plaque is so beautiful and well placed... supporting those columns and closely visible. I'm fine with the He's Our Man comment not being included on it. Much classier exactly as it stands.

Because of the file size and the limitations on uploads to the forum, I've had to post the program elsewhere. You can find the program in page order (1 through 8), as well as a pdf (hopefully printable) version, in layout order.

Thanks so much to all who contributed and to those able to attend. Ceremony went very well, and the number of photos of the plaque still being shot this morning when we checked out is incredible.

Special thanks to Leonard from Montreal and Sue for huge assistance efforts.

Thanks obviously to Lightning for getting videos up so fast!

Cohen nation is very solid ground!

I can't get those pages to open, Sue. They're just little red x's in little boxes in the upper left hand corner of a large, empty box.

Lizzy,
Maybe your computer is just a bit slow for all the information to appear. I got blank pages at first but they slowly developed. Try again and wait a minute or 2.
