  • Jeff Keane– Recipient of the NCS “Silver T-Square” for outstanding dedication to the Society
  • Brian Crane– Reuben winning creator of the syndicated comic strip “Pickles”; speaker

Great line up. Hoping everyone will still be talking to me after they see these caricatures I did of them. Pastis still won’t return my phone calls.
