“Lovely! And your voice is delightful. Fantastic story-telling!” Laura  A.

As a mother, and now a nana, story telling has been a constant in my family’s life.   Many a magical moment has been shared in telling stories that captured our imaginations, brought smiles and tears to our hearts, created a special bond among us.

Thank you Laura for becoming part of my online story telling family and posting your kind words about yesterday’s story.

Today’s story is the last in the three part series featuring the Ladies First Big Band. This one is a favorite of mine as it highlights a treasured and now missing part of many WNY’ers lives….the Crystal Ballroom at The Crystal Beach Amusement Park.

Sit back and enjoy this story of some very talented women…and a long ago musical tradition that they are helping to keep alive.
