EWGS enjoyed the "Bing thing"
EWGS was well represented at the "Bing thing" today..... the Bing Crosby Family History event at Gonzaga, sponsored by our state library. I estimated that half the group was from EWGS. If you weren't there you missed a fun day.
Howard Crosby, Bing's nephew and former golfing partner, knew his uncle well and shared some great stories about Bing. In his day Bing was a much bigger sensation that Elvis, the Beatles or Michael Jackson ever were. But according to Howard, he was a really great guy.
