Four members of the Barr Association attended the fan club luncheon on Aug. 21, 2005 at the Marriott Marquis in New York
City. Jaime manned a table where she sold Barr Association souvenirs while Peace and Marcie handed out Brooke pins and postcards
to other AMC fans. Everyone was upset when we told them Julia's contract might not be renewed this fall and promised to send
postcards or write TPTB.
When Julia was introduced at the luncheon she got a standing ovation! Jaime was waiting with a huge bouquet of flowers
from the Barr Association. She had to literally grab Julia to give her the flowers because Julia didn't know they were for
During the Q&A session Julia thanked us for the support and the flowers.
Shortly after giving her the flowers I (Marcie) noticed Julia's husband, Richie, standing in the back of the room.
Jaime and I talked with Richie for several minutes and he also told us how much our support meant to Julia. He is such a nice
man and a real pleasure to talk to.
After getting our colored pics of Julia autographed we spent some more time talking with Richie. He was very popular
with the fans as well!
When the event was over Julia took some more pictures with us and thanked us again for our support and the flowers. Julia
is such a sweet person and if you'd like to help keep her on the show please snail mail TPTB
and let them know you want her to stay on the show.
