Just wondering if there has been any news of plans for her birthday gathering this year in Carmel. Is it still on? If it is, what things are planned?

I've just confirmed that I'll be attending (whatever there is to attend!). Hope to meet some of you there!
Also hope to see a fan dinner at Stravaganza! The one that happened previously looks like it was a lot of fun! I hope fans out there share information of what's going on if they hear something!

My partner and I plan to be there. I feel sure the hotel will do something to honor her birthday. In recent years, Jim Martinez and vocalist Laura Didier have performed her songs in the great room of the hotel.

I'm posting this message on behalf of Sue Sforza, who has emailed me - please look out for her.
"I have been a fan of Doris' for the past 20 years. I follow your forum and saw that some members may be going to Carmel for her birthday. I will be there also and am staying at the Cypress Inn and
would like to meet them.

My name is Sue and I am from NJ."

You lucky, lucky people! Please take pictures and report on the festivities. I'll hopefully be celebrating that week her in New York City with my friend, Nellie McKay who made a Doris Day tribute album a couple of years a go. April is so much fun because of Doris! :D

Hi everyone,

I'm so happy to see that some fans/friends are heading to Carmel for 'our girls' birthday. I'll be there too, I'm Jeff from Toronto and my friend Harris from LA will also be attending. So looking forward to meeting everyone and enjoying Jim's amazing music with Laura. See you soon, Jeff

We arrived in Carmel yesterday. The Cypress Inn is brimming over with people and their pets. It's going to be a festive week of celebration.

I'd love to attend... I envy that they you all can meet and celebrate birthdays Doris in Carmel. My dream someday drive over to Carmel, personally meet Doris... I hope that an account of the events will be released online forum... Photos, maybe some video? This is a wonderful day, I'll watch movies and listen to recordings of Doris and probably I'll drink to the health of Doris :D Although it is not the same as meeting fans Doris in Carmel:( This will be my day with Doris, her films, recordings, and anything related to Doris:)
Have fun, laugh, celebrate!

You guys are really lucky- I feel like Doris said in an interview when she was travelling to Carmel every weekend and was sad to leave on a Monday and she'd see the locals at the supermarket and say to herself "you lucky..you really lucky.." [ to be there/ stay there]!

Anyhow, have a great time ya all and hopefully you can share some wonderful memories with us.

What are you wild and crazy guys and gals doing now? Keep the forum posted! Doris usuallly doesn't have a house filled just for her birthday. Must be the 35th year animal celebration. You go gurl!!

I sent Bryan a couple of pics from last night to post on the forum. A small group had dinner together at Cafe Stravanganza in Carmel Valley. This is one of Doris' favorite restaurants and she orders take out from them often. Harry, the owner, said he would call and tell her we were in town for her birthday.

Bryan still has the Easter banner up! Is he sleeping? Wish Doris would greet you all at the Cypress Inn. Wouldn't that be a thrill!!!

Typical home. Somewhat British in style - flower beds and clinging ivy are everywhere.
