"If there was a flag and I had to design it, it would have Clay Aiken on it." in Let's Talk About Clay Posted June 6, 2017 · Report reply That's today. Hope I remember. I'm going to the Gala. Should I start another Gala thread? No one replied last year. It's easy for me to get there as I only live 80 or so miles from Charlotte. The room was only about $120. with three of us sharing for 2 nights and food wasn't very much as they had a Starbucks and other cafes nearby. It was a great time so if any of you are considering going, Do it! Not sure what I'll do if my husband isn't doing better by then, but there is always an answer.
