April 10, 1964, Friday. Saffron Stomp, we made about $150.00 (Hope Howard comes, bet he won’t.)
As soon as school was over Marilyn and Angie and I went to MGM Studio. Granddaddy came riding out on a bicycle and gave us $10.00 from the raffle tickets he sold. Next we drove to Bel Air to see Unk Ile. We were there for an hour and a half. Unk gave us about $30.00 in Maybelline products for our raffle. Unk was so great and so was Emery. Milford the Houseman, brought us cokes on a silver tray and made us feel welcome. Angie, Marilyn and I each got about $10.00 worth of makeup. We made a box up as a raffle prize and raffled it off at the dance. After school we also had gone to Blue Chip Stamps and got a clock radio for the raffle, than we went to decorate the Elks Lodge. We left at 6:00 and went back at 7:30. John came, but I was real mean and kept shaking him off, because I always had to work. I hate Dale for telling me a whole bunch of lies that Howard said about me.
Raffle ticket for Saffron Stomp.
