61. Jimmy Crockett I heard from Jimmy September of 1997 and he gave me the following update. "I will always remember the special attention Mr. Henderson paid to me and every person who came into Harlick for a fitting. I think my file goes back to around 1959 or 60". To bring his bio up to date.. He skated (He is to humble. He STARED) with Holiday on Ice for 21 years all over the world and then continued with stage shows ...skating, choreography and directing for another 9 years. A 30 year career! He and his wife Marie, are now coaches ..passing on their knowledge to the future. They are in Greenville SC ..He is also the director for the skate school and has been coaching for 5 years....and...They are still wearing Harlick's. Let me also add that he won The 1975 World Professional Championships in Jaca, Spain. Thanks Jimmy for the update and we are happy that you are still skating strong.

Received an e-mail from Debbie William
Date: Tue, 14 Oct 1997 09:10:10 -0700

Hi husband just found this on the net...I never get on the
computer, so this is a rarity for me to be sending an E-mail. I'm Debbie
Williams of the Williams Family Holiday On Ice 55-63 and Follies 64-68. Saw
alot of you at the reunion last summer and it was like going to a family
reunion. Speaking of family, my son Taylor is 13 and an avid roller
blader, somewhat a form of skating but very crude...he loves it though. My
daughter, Dylan Rose is 3 and is a non-stop perpetual motion machine. My
mom says that she reminds her of for those of you who can remember
what a calm, shy, delicate, introverted child I can relate. Ha,
ha. Robbie or Rob, as he is known now is turning 43 in 2 days. He lives in
San Jose with his wife Karen and their two sons, Ryan and Kyle. Rob works in
the computer business for Hewlett Packard and has nothing to do with show
business. He got the brains in the family. Mom and Dad are now living in
Las Vegas and are semi retired but keep extremely busy. They're still
Gypsy's at heart and I suppose they'll pick up and move again sometime soon.
We live in Manhattan Beach California and both Steve and I work in the
television industry. I still do just about every live television special
on television and have just completed E.R LIVE, the first episode of the
season. I don't want to make anyone feel old but I will be 45 in January.
But like my mom, we hide our age well. I'm not sure who this is going to
but Hi to Bonnie and all the people at Harlick who made those beautiful
boots that formed my feet from the age of 2 to 23. I'm sure you're all as
busy as ever and hope your all doing well.

79. Shirly Winter Ice Capades.
My wife is somewhat slow in blowing her own horn so I sometimes do it for her.  Here is some information to go along with her picture:
Shirley Winter:  Western Canada Junior Champion.  Principle Skater with Ice Capades 1948 - 1955.  Principal Skater Holiday on Ice 1955 - 1957. Stared with Stars on Ice 1958 - 1960.   Instructor - Los Angeles Area 1960 - 1980.  Now makes her (our) home in Pebble Beach, CA.  Skates regularly in San Jose, CA and spends a lot of time trying to get an ice rink built on the Monterey Peninsula. If you have any suggestions on how to get local politicians to appreciate the need for a sport like ice skating, Shirley would appreciate suggestions. Oh...somewhere along the way she acquired a husband (me), a son (Mark) and a grandson (Roan).
