CHAIRS:  Edith & Albert Doolittle

In 1997, the 100 Year Anniversary of the Conferences on Star Island, Edith Doolittle was asked to remember way back to 1964 to relay the week's memories.

     "First of all it was only the second year of LOAS I. In those days “Twissie”, who had conceived the idea for these new conferences, promised the prospective chairs that there was really nothing to the job. She would do all the planning, get the theme speaker (in our case the Rev Phil Giles), the minister of the week, teachers etc., etc., and we would “just have to be there to keep things running." (Once on the island Twissie kept a very low profile)
     Well, RUN we did from morning ‘til night. To save on getting a staff person for leader of the teenagers, she asked Albert to take that job. There were 17 teenagers that year from 13 - 18 years old so, believe me, he had his hands full! That left Edith to be hostess, bell ringer, rover and all the other things volunteers do now. It was exhausting but fun. (I’m glad I was only 47 then)
     One of the most memorable events of the week was an unplanned evening musicale. We discovered by accident that two overnight guests, two conferees, and one Pelican were members of the Arlington Street UU Church’s Gilbert and Sullivan Singers. They enthusiastically agreed, on very short notice, to do a concert for us. It was wonderful!
     We were happy with the way the week went, but more than happy to turn the first LOAS ll over to Miriam and Byron Saunders."
