Luncheon today was really nice! About 130 people attended. Hosted by the American Hungarian Federation and the Hungarian American Cultural Association and held in a ballroom at a big hotel.
I was seated at a table with the President of the University of St. Thomas and his wife, the Council General to the Republic of Hugnary and his wife, Bryan Dawson, and the AHF President and friend Istvan Fedor. The most distinguished at our table, I thought, was a woman named Lilly de Schrenik SILL and her husband Gerald. I’m told that Mrs. de Schrenik is the daughter of Count Drascovich. (She told me about the castle inwhich she grew up, and which was destroyed in World War Two.)
Similar reaction from crowd as from the St. Thomas screening. The best part is that there’s a new audience … more people to spread the word about the movie.
Long travel home … home 1am
Exhasuted .. can’t go on tonight,
