I posted this announcement at my blog today:
Anyone familiar with Michael Landon's Little House on the Prairie remembers Mrs. Foster, Walnut Grove's faithful Post Mistress, who was played by actress Ruth Foster.
Susan McCray has informed us that Ruth Foster will be participating in this year's Lompoc Flower Festival Parade, which will take place at 10:00 AM on Saturday, June 28, 2008 in Lompoc, California. We understand from Ruth's nephew that she is thrilled to participate. In addition to Ruth's work on Little House, she is an accomplished dancer and stand-in for many films and television shows. She was also an associate producer for Fatal Confession: A Father Dowling Mystery staring Tom Bosley and Tracy Nelson.
We congratulate Ruth on this honor and hope that some of you may get the chance to see Ruth as she travels along the parade route in Lompoc on June 28th.
And don't forget to check out Ruth's two-part interview with Susan McCray on Getting to Know You, which airs on KSAV.org every Tuesday night at 6:30 PM Pacific and 9:30 PM Eastern. You'll find this interview in the archives at http://www.susanmccray.com/archives.htm
