Dottie Hawk With Great affection we dedicate this concert to the memory of Dottie Hawk who gave the band her talent, enthusiasm, and energy for over fifty years.  She will be long remembered for her hilarious portrayal of the harried secretary in performances of Leroy Anderson's "The Typewriter" as well as her more recent post as chief seller of 50/50 raffle tickets.
