By Shirley Broun
YESTERDAY afternoon I checked in to read the latest notifications on Facebook.
A post from entertainment industry stalwart Brian Fogarty caught my eye. Something about my dear friend Greg Doolan. `Oh what's Greg up to,' I thought inquisitively. Then I read it:

Share your special memories

WHEN you look at what entertainers contribute in their bid to make our days, special occasions and lives so much more fun and memorable, then I can understand why the industry has such a strong following worldwide. And, I bet just about everyone has a special memory to share about how a performer - whether it be an actor, singer, dancer, personality, musician or another from the industry - has touched their lives.

An invitation to contribute


When I first started my National Entertainment Magazine Variety Today back in 1990, my aim was to promote Entertainers from all areas of the industry and provide them with a voice through its pages.

This was achieved by the industry not only reading and subscribing to the publication but also by contributing stories, columns, photographs, letters, updates, cartoons, jokes, funny annecdotes and so much more.
