I heard both of the girls that worked in the Visitor Center have quit!!! Is this true?

Hillary J Homburg said...

Yes. This is very old news. Mindy left months ago and Diane has been gone for almost 45 days.
Both will be missed greatly as they knew 'glass' and were very frendly.
The 'new' staff will learn, and soon we'll be depending on these ladies.

Hillary, I understand the third ornament will be available at the visitors center on June 20? Is that true or do we need to pre-order? Will Richard be in attendance on the 20th to sign purchased pieces?

Hillary J Homburg said...

Good questions. I will email Blenko your questions and if they have an answer I'll post it here.
My thoughts are Richard will not be signing, last I spoke with Richard he was planning a trip to England for June.
