1990 was a busy year for Carolina.  She attended 2 Film Festivals that year.  The first was this intimate-but-lively gathering in Little Rock.  It was a great opportunity for fans to meet the Western stars of the Silver Screen, including those from their Home State.  Lash LaRue was not listed in the flyers but also appeared at the gathering.

1990 Atlanta Film & Memorabilia Fair--Atlanta, GA

The second Western film gathering Carolina attended in 1990 was in Georgia.  The Atlanta Film & Memorabilia Fair VI paid homage to Women In Film.  Five lovely ladies of the screen were honored guests.  One of Disney's Mouseketeers, Darlene Gillespie, was originally scheduled to appear.  Although she did not attend, another Mouse Club member--Doreen Tracey--was a special guest.   According to the flyer, Kirk Alyn was scheduled but was unable attend.  And many fans were happy to see the ever-popular Lash LaRue.

Carolina did not appear in any Film Festivals in 1991-1992. And she was very happy to be back among friends and fans at Knoxville's convention, as she put on a lively show at the Banquet.

Lash LaRue was asked to attend, but wasn't sure he could make it. So he surprised everyone

when he showed up at the last minute! (He gave an acceptance speech & poem, for the award

to be presented at a later time). Ben Johnson was not able to attend, due to obligations at NBC.

But a taped phone message was played for everyone at the Awards Banquet.
