Good Evening everyone
I know you have been waiting on announcement about GHFCW and I said June 1st, but I have one answer for you now.
I have talked it over with TeamGHFC and many other folks and
we have decided to move the event weekend to October 15th-19th.
Please listen up. Currently this is all we have for you. There are a total of 7 people working at the Embassy Suites right now and I was lucky to find one just to secure the date change. But there is no one currently there to help me with room blocks, changes of any kind other than the date change.
You guys are going to have patients please. I cannot give you answers that I don’t have or cannot get at this time.
I do not know what actors will move their events with us yet so right now everything is on hold until I can get you some answers.
I just felt it was the right thing to do by letting you know ASAP about a date change.
Due to the COVID-19 issue I feel this is the right thing to do. I am not putting my own life in danger and I certainly am not going to put one of yours in danger. I just do not feel that the July time slot will work for any of us. Maybe I am not as optimistic as other folks are, but I must think safety first for everyone involved.
We will continue to work on all aspects of the weekend an as we get answers, when we get answers you will be the first to know. Please remember this is not the first thing on most folks’ mind right now so getting in touch with many is a difficult challenge. At this time the actors do not even know when they will return to work so work with me here folks.
If you have questions you can contact me via email only or Claire via email only and we will will respond as time permits us to. I will not answer questions on any kind of social media. Period. Emails are firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. I can tell you Claire will probably answer you much quicker than I will. LOL Just being honest.
You can also measure us by this. We are 3 weeks ahead of the Convention. If they cancel than we cancel for 2020. We just have to see how it goes when LA starts reopening. It is all about the safety for everyone, bottom line.
I just got off the phone with the one contact I have at the hotel an I ask them to move all reservations made in our block to the Oct dates. Now if it happens, if and you need to adjust your dates give them a week or so to make these changes before calling to make any changes or cancellations. Again I ask that you please work with us here.
Thanks for you love and your patients. I have said it a million times, there are no fans like GH fans. Loyal, supportive and just awesome!

First look at “The Story of Soaps” revealed HERE .
ABC and PEOPLE present “The Story of Soaps,” a two-hour prime-time television event highlighting the iconic impact of the soap opera. Featuring an incredible panel of experts and voices, “The Story of Soaps” airs TUESDAY, MAY 19 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.
“The Story of Soaps” explores how no genre of television has laid deeper roots into our cultural consciousness and serialized storytelling than the soap opera. In today’s shifting television landscape, “The Story of Soaps” traces how female creators migrated from radio to television to become the dominant force in daytime for more than three decades. Today, that legacy is alive and well all over prime time and reality, and much of what propels modern television traces its roots back to those first sprawling, steamy storylines. “The Story of Soaps” takes an extensive look at this iconic, impactful genre and the cultural phenomenon its massive impact has had on the world at large.
