Performance at the Pardee House Museum,
Oakland California on April 19, 2015
Yesterday Lois had the wonderful opportunity to perform at the Pardee House for a group of supporters and officers of the museum, the entertainment program of an event created to thank these people. There were perhaps sixty people packed into the living room and hallway of what was the home of George Pardee as a youngster and on to be the home of his family and his wife, Helen. Pardee was a medical doctor and politician who became mayor of Oakland and later Governor of California, 1903 to 1907.
So this is why it was so wonderful. The house is actually in the nearby neighborhood to where Isadora grew up in Oakland. It is one block from the still existing Oakland Unitarian Church where Isadora first performed. Lois was introduced as Isadora by Dennis, dressed in evening attire of the period, playing Governor Pardee. Full story

Lois was just on the radio in Sonoma, in preface to her performance there this month. How did she do?
“Wow, great job, Lois, on outreach!!
I was surprised that Ken didn’t ask more questions. I think perhaps he’s rarely blessed with a person who can speak so articulately about their subject, so he just let you “fly.” I have no feel for how many people listen to our local radio shows. But it’s the only on-air voice we have, so we take advantage of it. Thanks again for taking the time to do it.
