Roy and Dale’s 1970 Travel Schedule

My parents retired (sort of) after their ABC variety show was cancelled in 1962. They moved to the High Desert  (Apple Valley) NW of Los Angeles in 1965 and Dad instructed his agent, Art Rush, not to even bring him projects because he didn’t want to work in Hollywood any more.   Mom had no intention to retire, so she concentrated on writing her books and traveling to give her Christian testimony.  Following is their 1970 travel schedule, as you can see, neither of them was retired!

    Retire, don’t think so from that list of events they were at. Lovely picture of them.
    Cheryl do you have any idea when they came to Vancouver B.C Canada. A niece and I went to a Saturday night performance. After your parents were surrounded by young children in awe of their heroes. My niece and I were a little older, I was in my 20’s and she was a teen. So we really didn’t want to, I don’t know, maybe we were just too shy to stand in awe with the young children. So we missed our opportunity to get their autograph and speak to them. But we did get Bob Nolan’s autograph and Pat’s. No one was around them, so we wandered over to them and asked for theirs. They gladly gave us their autographs. I had them both for years before I lost them somewhere. But it was a memory of seeing and listening to them in person. Still love them.

      Sorry, Gladys,but I don’t know when they played Vancouver. Mom loved Vancouver and I think she was there several times.
