The Kinsloe House Committee, headed by Marsha Banks and Clara Hickerson as co-chairs, welcome local reviewer Nancy Smith with delightful and amusing look into The 101 Most Influential People Who Never Lived by Lazar, Karlan, and Salter. This is a collection of characters of fiction, legend, movies, and television, from King Arthur to Perry Mason to Barbie, who not only entertained us but have shaped our society, changed our behavior, and even affected our history. Not only will this review be light-hearted with laughs galore but it will also be a perfect opportunity to meet Kinsloe House’s new caterer Emily Hines of Mildred. Due to the Labor Day holiday, we are asking attendees to make their reservations or cancellations by Friday, Aug. 30. Please call Kinsloe House at (903) 874-5791 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Again, we hope to see a large crowd as this will be our first luncheon with our new caterer.
