    Wonderful to know Merrie is back at the BA. We were friends back in ’81 when she worked with Nancy Lamb, ushered in TMC and volunteered at the BA. At one usher meeting, she told us all the BA guests were glad to see her when she came once a week to feed them. Someone commented, “I’d be glad to see you too, if you only fed me once a week.” Still chuckling over that moment. Welcome home, Merrie.

    It’s evident from what you’ve already done that the B.A. residents are in for more unique experiences! By the way, you wouldn’t be related to Grace Mizaras, would you? She was at the Publishing Society when I was first there from 1951 to 1956, and we became friends at that time.

      Yes, my dearly beloved Auntie Gracie, my father’s sister… she loved working at the Publishing House! and was a good family friend of Nell Shelton… who you might remember! thanks for reminding me of those times…

    I know your talents will bring many fun and interesting things to the B.A. I remember you from Local Activities and just “being around” The Mother Church. Marilyn Crowley
