Carol Channing - a Polar Bear at heart

She performed the first-ever concert in the Freed Center, April 27, 1991

This note from the ONU Facebook:
"Even though Carol Channing wasn't an ONU alumna, she will always be a Polar Bear in our hearts.

"Ms. Channing performed the first concert at ONU's Freed Center for the Performing Arts on April 27, 1991, and absolutely knocked it out of the park.

Apart from her obvious talent, she was an incredibly kind and thoughtful person, even sending us personal Christmas cards after her one visit to Ada. Thank you, Ms. Channing!"

Ms. Channing died at 12:31 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2019, at home in Rancho Mirage, California, of natural causes.
