Rise Stevens at 92!

<br /><font size=”2″ style=”font-weight: bold;”><span style=”font-style: italic;”>Rise Stevens with Anna Moffo at the Metropolitan Opera Tribute!</span><br /><br />Our CafePress boutique has a new sale, free shipping on your order. Coupon code is: VDAYSHIP. To take advantage of it, <a href=”http://www.cafepress.com/maceddy”>click here or on the boutique link on our home page</a>. NOTE: If you order Mac/Eddy postage
stamps now, you will get the 39c stamps even though the picture still
shows the 37c stamps (the photos should be updated in the next day or
so). Apparently CafePress is still transitioning over to the new stamps and they are showing &quot;temporarily out of stock&quot; as of today.<br /><br />And
finally, due to several requests, we are going to try out an &quot;easy pay&quot;
system for the Nelson and Jeanette busts. If you pay by credit card and
note &quot;easy pay&quot; in the comment section, we will divide the cost into
three payments; only the first payment will go through when you
intially place the order, even though it shows the full purchase
price.  This is a trial, so if you’re interested please take advantage
of it right away. I know I’ve said it before, but photos don’t do these
busts justice–they are quite startling &quot;in person!&quot; I’m reminded of
the time I actually lugged one of them to England for a meeting there,
and the people were so amazed at how lifelike Nelson was, some of them
lined up to give him a kiss! <br /><br />Now, other good news! If
you live anywhere near Washington, D.C. or can get there for the meeting, it’s
going to be super! And–if you’re coming from out-of-town, make it a
weekend and stay overnight so you can see Darryl Winston’s excellent
production of &quot;The Merry Widow&quot; Saturday evening after the club
meeting! Darryl can help you get an affordable hotel room in the area,
so call him if you need help with this at (202) 783-7600. You can
purchase tickets online for the club event at this <a href=”../index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=13&products_id=161″>link.</a><br /><br />And finally… Rise Stevens, Nelson’s co-star in <span style=”font-style: italic;”>The Chocolate Soldier</span>,  is alive and well at 92, and was honored last week at the Metropolitan Opera. She’s pictured here (in a wheelchair but looking fabulous) with another opera diva, Anna Moffo. Thanks to Darryl Winston for sending this to us.</font><br /><a href=”http://www.maceddy.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=3_15&products_id=143″>&nbsp;</a>
