Congratulations June Foray on Winning an Emmy!

Mark Evanier just tweeted from the Emmy Awards ceremony that June Foray, at age 94, won her first Emmy Award for Voice Acting. Long overdue – is an understatement. I wish I was there tonight – The photo above (by Scarlett Stahl) was taken a few years ago at the Annie Awards. Congratulations, June!!
