Well it looks like Eileen Fisher, Inc. is going to sponsor this upcoming 40th Anniversary Celebration. I am pleased to have had the opportunity to get to know Miriam and introduce her to some of the special folks at EF. I hope to attend the celebration on Saturday, October 1, 2011 at Boston University.
