May 2nd, 2003, marked the one-year anniversary of Buckets' passing. Those who attended the Miami memorial service on July 27th, 2002, remember Ken Kurtz's amazing “kickoff” and the touching, funny moments, songs, monologues and sentiments from our fellow actors from all over the world. We have taken many of these wonderful pieces, and edited them into a two-hour commemorative video we know you will want as a keepsake of that most incredible evening—paying tribute to “The Man.” Unfortunately, not everyone who participated is represented due to a “video tragedy” that was beyond our control. However, we've done our best to recreate that magical evening to share with all the Ring Alumni.

We are only asking $20.00 for the video, which covers our expense of duplication and shipping. To order, please contact Pam Talus.

I am employed once again, after a summer of, as we say in theatre, being "between opportunities." I am a Budget Specialist for the Office of Grants Administration at Miami-Dade County Public Schools. Our office takes care of the many details that go into helping the district, schools, and teachers make their dreams come true through grants they've gotten from state or federal sources or private foundations. It combines my background in education and business administration, and best of all, I get to stay in Miami and keep in touch with my friends from "back in the day" and today.

Best wishes!

Philip "Joel" Williams
